✩ The 8 Irresistible Principles of Fun ✩
1. Stop hiding who you really are
Take time to figure out what makes your DNA When it comes down to it, what do you stand for? And then, when you know who you are, turn up the volume!
“Always be a first rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of someone else.” -Judy Garland, Actress
2. Start being intensely selfish
Get hungry for the things that are truly important to you. Think of the people you respect and love, the moments you relish, the impact that you want to have, the legacy you want to leave… bottom line: don’t waste your time on anything else.
“When you come right down to it, all you have is yourself. All the rest is nothing.”
-Pablo Picasso, Artist
3. Stop following the rules
With the exception of gravity, almost all of the rules are negotiable. Someone just makes them up. It’s no longer about what you can’t do, it’s about what you can do.
“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” -Katherine Hepburn, Actress
4. Start scaring yourself
Explore the edges. Dip your toe in the bold, the outrageous, and the unthinkable. Seek out and have adventure.
“Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages. Biter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful.” -Ernest Shackleton, Explorer
5. Stop taking it all so damn seriously
In this moment, is it a life or death decision? In ten years, will you remember what you’re fretting about? In 100 years, will anyone care? So lighten up, this too will pass.
“Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.” -Elbert Hubbard, Publisher
6. Start getting rid of the crap
Think of all the stuff that’s weighing you down and getting in the way. Not just the things, but also the habits, the memories, the attitudes, the people. Get rid of that clutter.
“Knowledge is a process of piling up facts, wisdom lies in their simplification.” -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Civil Rights Leader
7. Stop being busy
Being busy is seductive. Just because you’re going flat out, doesn’t mean you’re on the right track. If it’s the wrong hole, you need to stop digging
“We’re lost, but we are making good time.” -Yogi Berra, Baseball Philosopher
8. Start something
Don’t wait any longer for permission to do what you want to do. There are always reasons to procrastinate just a little longer. Enough. Just start!
“When all is said and done, a lot more is said than done.” -Lou Holtz, Sports Coach
