Hi friends, here is your weekly dose of “Simply Good Life”, a newsletter that tries to make your day a little bit better and help you to grow personally and professionally. Enjoy!

The Crazy Question

Please answer the following question before you watch the video below:

The Wednesday noon meeting has been moved forward by two hours. Do you now think that the meeting is now at 2 pm or at 10 am?

If you think the meeting is now at 2 pm you have the ego-moving perception of time. If you think it’s now at 10 am you have the time-moving perception of time.

WHAT? Watch here to find out what it means (by the way, I definitely think the only possible answer to this question is 2 pm!).

Should We Hack Our Sleep?

A common trait of geniuses like Nikola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci is that they slept just a few hours per night. In this video, Vanessa Hill explains why the short sleep time may have worked for them, and why it doesn’t work for us.

Trick your Happiness

…your happiness level actually depends on how often you experience positive events, rather than how magically intense each event actually is.

That’s why you need a happiness journal. Trick your brain into thinking you have a fantastic life by writing down a lot of small positive things every day. Give your brain the impression there is a ton of positive events in your life.

Rich isn’t Money

“Rich isn’t money. You can have all the money in the world and there’s a few people like this that are unhappy and unhealthy.” — John Paul DeJoria

Rich for me is being healthy and happy.

“If you have happiness and health, you have two of the richest things on the planet, everything else comes after that.”

What does rich mean for you?

Have a good Friday, all
