There are so many quick tips available promising to change your lifestyle “for the better” but hardly are of any use. What may seem working for one may be useless for the others. Keeping those things in consideration here are four changes, which anyone can do right now to better their lifestyle:
1) Minimalism– This is a shortcut to peak productivity. It is still very uncommon but slowly it’s becoming popular. Minimalism is keeping only those objects in our homes, which are often used, and the rest is just dumped. The way to go is removing one item everyday for next month or so which you don’t use currently and will not in any case imaginable. What happens is your life becomes faster and smoother as there is less to choose from and only those that are important. Surely, you do not want to live in a place junked with things that you don’t like or use, and keep only those things that you are passionate about. Life becomes so much cooler. Here is a quote to get you going:
“Your home is living space, not storage space.”
― Francine Jay
2) Learn some Life hacks– We people get so much fixed in our notions of living and our creativity becomes so very dull. To get out of the trap easily one way is learn some cool life hacks like cool ways to open a chips wrapper or how to keep beer bottles in the deep freeze, which are available everywhere on the internet, YouTube. When you do that our fixed notions of how life should be start to loosen up. This gives a person a dose of creativity, manageability and efficiency. From there one can take their curiosity to every parts of their life- how can they improve upon, what better ways to do things and so on.

3) Automation– This is, in my opinion, the common tool use by most successful entrepreneurs use. This is important. Financial freedom is not about willpower. The common idea is if your work hard a bit more and give more time you will earn more money and live a better and free life. Nothing could be more wrong. This is a trap, of workaholism; and the last time you will check you are 80 years old with probably close to a million in the bank but with 18 hours of work, some huge debts, no partner and an empty life. The way out is to stop and cut the crap or in other words- automate. Whichever task in your job you don’t enjoy or kind of like a chore you employ others to do it or use some technology. For example you are an yoga teacher and take yoga classes but you don’t the invitation, calling people, making posters part, you hire someone. What this will give you is time. You focus on only things that matter to you and so at the end you become far more productive. This is the mantra for financial freedom.
“If you don’t design you own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” ―Jim Rohin
4) Attempt at thing that you love and seem impossible– Now that you have extra time what you going to do with it. Here is the thing you do list all the things that you would love to do, a skill to learn or a place to go before you die (a bucket list?) and start one by one. Choose one and write all the things you should do and all the things you should avoid both before and after to effectively complete the task without much hassle in your life. When you have brought the chances to any serious instability in your life (style) by finding maximum possible ways to get away with the work done, you are ready to go.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ―Francis of Assisi
