If you’re looking for a quick 80/20 rule on how to be happier in your life within 7 days, then do the following:

1) Wake up in the morning and think of 3 things that you are grateful for
2) Before you go to bed, think of 3 things you are grateful for

Do this for 7 days in a row and you will feel at least 10% happier.

Try it, and post your results in the comments below.

(I will explain why this works in a later article. For now, just consider trying it. Some things you can only learn by doing, not by reading about it. This is one of those things.)
