We all want a happy new year.
At the start of the year advertisers make the most of that fact. They tell us that:
- If we join the gym we can be healthier.
- Moving home will make us that much happier.
- Our lives will be even better if we start a new job.
But investing in those changes means accepting there are happiness gaps in our life (affecting our Health, Comfort or Career) and that these gaps need to be tackled.
Gap filling tools include, self help books; trusted advice; even blog posts.
Speaking for myself I am going to make more time this year to keep score. By that I mean taking time to assess my life to work out where the happiness gaps are. If an area scores 5 out of 10, or less, then I have to move it up a notch. I will set a goal, agree some actions, relate the actions to dates and get started. I’ll write about the results here.
I hope this post helps nudge you to sit down with a cuppa and score the important parts of your life out of 10, to work out what you can change.
