10 ways to a better life

Monday, April 16, 2007

There are several ways to improve your life, but I think you know what will work for you better than I do, so why are you wasting your time reading this. There is no magic bullet. 

Sadly, that hasn’t stopped anyone from writing and (more distressingly)  from reading the following amusingly titled books.

  1. Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-free Productivity by David Allen
  2. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey (Paperback – 4 Jan 1999) 
  3. Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks (Paperback – 28 April 2005) 
  4. Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Stop Smoking (Allen Carrs Easy Way) by Allen Carr (Paperback – 5 Jan 2006) 
  5. Change Your Life in Seven Days by Paul McKenna (Paperback – 31 Dec 2003) 
  6. The Goddess Guide by Gisele Scanlon (Hardcover – 18 Sep 2006) 
  7. Introducing NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming by Joseph O’Connor and John Seymour (Paperback – Jan 2003) 
  8. Affluenza by Oliver James (Hardcover – 25 Jan 2007) 
  9. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway: How to Turn Your Fear and Indecision into Confidence and Action by Susan Jeffers 
  10. Screw It, Let’s Do It: Lessons in Life (Quick Reads) by Sir Richard Branson (Paperback – 2 Mar 2006)  

I particularly like the sound of “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway: How to Turn Your Fear and Indecision into Confidence and Action” that has me feeling really positive.

Let’s take another list of things that could make your life “better”:

  1. Turn on, tune in, drop out.
  2. Eat less: gluten | dairy | caffeine | sugar | eggs | meat | food.
  3. Eat more: green | fruits | dairy | protein | organic | bull semen.
  4. Do more: excercise | meditation | lists | smiling | yoga | sleeping | making love.
  5. Do less: smoking | drinking | sleeping | fucking | procrastinating.
  6. Reach for the best available thought™
  7. Pay more attention to what people say, you might learn something
  8. Don’t call violent people ‘fuck-ass’.
  9. Don’t keep it in.
  10. Blog more.

I could write about this for hours, you know why, because I’m making it up as I go on. The trick, is to find weak people, and then (re)package the bullshit into a form that they want to swallow, and administer 3 times a day, after meals.
