Today our focus was on Happy. I talk about why following a routine on paper… deliberately and not just in our head contributes to happy. We will find ourselves in a land of contentment when we call the shots in our lives, even when some things are not what are ideal.

In day 4 video, I talk about a book called “Stumbling on Happiness” and how it revealed to me what actually happened for me when life was very difficult and I was in a deep state of depression. Somehow getting the routine I was already doing by memory on paper and mindfully following brought me out of the depression as a result turned me from miserable to happy.

Below is the routine, make sure you make it your own.


  • Up on Time (Right the time)
  • Make bed
