I guess it’s a thing to make a list of how to live a happy life. Because a lot of people have done it. So many, that I loved this post on LifeHack.org called 10 Insanely Awesome Inspirational Manifestos!
There are 10 sometimes-similar but also fantastically different ideas here, from The Holstee Manifesto you’ve probably seen, to Frank Lloyd Wright’s manifesto that The Happiness Project’s Gretchen Rubin wrote about—and speaking of, Gretchen’s a great manifesto inspiration, too!
So, scroll through, pick your favorite, and post it on your cork board or computer desktop to refer to everyday.
Here’s why: If you have a daily reminder to live life the way you want to—with the right To Dos on top—you’ll reach the end of the year really feeling like you’ve accomplished something. Because whether or not you’ve found a relationship, gotten a promotion, or saved the money you intended to, living as authentically, kindly, and generously as you can is the greatest achievement there is.
