The following 11 tiny tweaks (each which take 3 minutes or less) have made the most disproportional differences in my life:
- Making my socks interchangeable. (I have two sock types; business and casual. Each sock within the same group is interchangeable with every other sock in the same group.)
- Starting every day with a prioritized to-do list. (I keep it simple and mark each item for the following day as either critical or non-critical.)
- Auditing my friendships. Is someone always negative? If so, why would they still be my friend?
- Experimenting with different goals/lifestyles often! You will never know what makes you thrive until you are able to find it.
- Ditching my traditional savings account (which actually lost money when you factor in inflation) and investing in low fee index funds.
- Setting a “go to sleep” alarm on my phone.
- Carrying a laptop power extension cord with me. (This is helpful for difficult to reach plugs in coffee shops and elsewhere.)
- Traveling with a small roll of gaff tape (gaffers tape is better than duct tape as it doesn’t melt easily and it doesn’t leave residue.)
- For every new item I get, I ditch two of my old items (I give them to friends, charity or if necessary, the nearest trash can.)
- Traveling often. There is no better form of education.
- The rare moments when I stop just reading good advice online and actually go out and apply it!
