Batman is my favorite character. I’ve been a fan since I was a little boy. Batman turned 80 this year, and recently I entered the 50s.
In life we each have things that bring us joy and happiness. Reading or watching something about the The Dark Knight does just that.
What are things or experiences that bring you joy and happiness?
Here is an exercise for you:
Grab a few sheets of paper and draw a vertical line down the middle of the sheets of paper.
Next, on the left side of the paper, write down all of the experiences, things, foods, etc that you really enjoy. Be as complete as you can be. If you need to take a couple days to complete the list, please do so.
After you have completed the list, the next step in this exercise is to write down the last time (date) you experienced each item on this list.
My hunch is that there are many items you have not experienced in quite some time.
Why aren’t you doing things you enjoy?
”I’m too busy” or “I don’t have time” is a bullsh*t answer.
We all get 24 hours. How we utilize those hours is up to each of us.
The final step is to choose 3 things from your list, and SCHEDULE yourself to do/experience these things within the next 10 days.
DO NOT SKIP THESE APPOINTMENTS WITH YOURSELF.
Treat them as if they are a crucial meeting with your boss.
Get in the habit of enjoying things and experiences in your life.
