My current recipe for a good life: Essentials, Life goals, Action.

  1. Low level: Spot the elements in your life that make you feel good. For example: I have three (writing, walking, talking). Make sure you are able to do them every day so they become an essential (even sacred) part in your life.
  2. High Level: Take a good amount of time (days, weeks) to define your life goals. Think big here because those dream goals should be attractive to you even in 10 years. Read „10X Rule“ if you struggle to find them.
  3. Mid Level, the most important one because it’s the glue that connects the low level and high level. Take action! These are the small activities, the work, you do every day that add up to something big eventually. Action connect your low-level elements of well-being with your high-level dream goals. In other words: Action connects a fulfillment with achievement.

This recipe is a draft and work in progress.
