10 rules (part 2) for happier self

Having your self a part time hobby or goal enriches your self and increases productivity both in your regular day job as well as personal life. Here are the 10 tips to achieve it.

-= Tim Ferriss’s 10 rules =- (as I understand)

1. Have other interests – apart from day job do something different of your interest

2. Scratch your own itch – continued from point 1, add your creativity in hobby projects

3. Learn the art of the pitch _– I think this a develop art of storytelling

_4. Focus on your strengths _– strengthen what you are best at along with improving weakness

_5. Be able to sell
– similar to point 3, work on your communications

6. Ideas are worth nothing – try to realise your thoughts plans into actions

7. Pick the right things to do – prioritise and work on what is needed now

8. Be pragmatically pessimistic – don’t be overly optimistic/pessimistic (hope for the best, prepare for the worst)

9. Have a focused metric – evaluate and re-evaluate your goals vs accomplishments

10. Use failure to help you – learn from your mistakes

I think these are simple things easier said than done. Takes persistence to put this into practice and make it into your inevitable part of life.

This is another post on same lines of my previous post. Just jolting it down for future me and for anyone reading this. Got this one from another video.
