The World’s Shortest Guide to Succeed in Life

Yes­ter­day I read a blog post from Mil­lion­aire Mommy Next Door, The World’s Short­est Guide On How To Be Thin and Rich. The gist of the post is so short that I’ll just quote the “guides” here.

To be thin:

  1. Eat less
  2. Exer­cise more

To be rich:

  1. Spend less money than you earn (or to put it another way, make more money than you spend)
  2. Invest in your future

From there, I pro­pose a more generic frame­work for suc­cess in life in general:

  1. Figure out what would bring you closer to your goal
  2. Do it

It’s that freak­ing simple.

As an exper­i­ment, you can ask your­self (or your friends): do you know what to bring you closer to your goals? Are you doing those things?
