“Don’t make a living, design a life” has been in my Instagram bio for over 2.5 years, not because it sounds good, but because it actually works.

I’ve designed my life around three criteria:

  1. Make a lot of money
  2. Help a lot of people
  3. Have a lot of fun

If a specific activity doesn’t fit one of these three criteria, I either don’t do it at all, or I outsource it.

We are the sum of our habits, so we can pick the outcomes we want to experience on a daily basis and then get into the habit of doing things that contribute to those outcomes.

Life is good, but only if you design it that way.

What criteria have you designed your life around?
