As I've talked to people about happiness over the years (and I admit to being somewhat of a bore on the topic), I've found that certain issues tend to crop up most often. Do any of these sound familiar to you?
"I want to create an orderly, calm space, but I'm overwhelmed by clutter."
"I need to find a way to insulate myself from someone else's persistent negativity."
"I feel terrible about how often I lose my temper with my kids."
"I feel like I don't know myself. What do I want to do for fun? Why can't I make time for myself? Why do I feel bored by things that other people enjoy?"
For that reason, I've created four new "21 Day Projects" for you to follow, if you want to tackle these challenges in your own life. I’ve collected ideas in a form that makes it easier for people to remember and follow various connected resolutions on these particular themes.
A while back, I offered the 21 Day Relationship Challenge, and it has proved so popular that I wanted to offer more projects along the same model. So I’ve invested in creating these four new projects, because people seem to find this approach helpful.
I really do believe that in just 21 days, it's possible to take many small, concrete steps to make your life happier. And don’t worry, none of these proposed resolutions will take much time or energy—because no one has much time or energy to spare. These are little changes you can easily fit into your ordinary day.
Intrigued? Of course you are!
Each 21-Day Project is $4.99, and delivers a new email from me, every day for three weeks, with ideas and suggestions for you to explore in your own life:
As Samuel Johnson remarked, "It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible." I hope you find these 21 Day Projects useful as you pursue your own happiness project.
