- Does it make me happy?
- Does it make me better?
- Does it make me money?
A long time ago, these were the 3 rules that I lived by. Everything I did had to meet at least one of the 3 requirements, and it was great. My life was less stressful and much more exciting.
Does it make me happy?
This was my favourite of the three, this was what led to my wardrobe being the size that it is today. I could freely buy what I wanted because it made me feel good. I wonder how I always had enough money to survive each day.
Does it make me better?
There were times when I was tasked with an activity that I hated, but it made me better. It made me more compassionate, or allowed me to learn a new skill. It benefitted another individual in a positive way, and therefore made me a better person.
Does it make me money?
This seems to be my main focus in life right now. How can I get more money? With so many responsibilities, bills and student loans, I rarely make it to the end of the month with money in my account. I seem to be chasing money which in turn seems to be playing hide and seek with me.
I need to bring back balance into my life with these 3 questions. I need to do more of what makes me happy, more of what makes me better and less of what makes me money.
