A few weeks back I shared some bare minimum ideas we can all be grateful for. This week I came across a similar list in Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. Tim uses these four categories to catalyze his mind for his morning gratitude journaling:
An old relationship that really helped you, or that you valued highly.
An opportunity you have today. Perhaps that’s just an opportunity to call one of your parents, or an opportunity to go to work. It doesn’t have to be something large.
Something great that happened yesterday, whether you experienced or witnessed it.
Something simple near you or within sight. This was a recommendation from Tony Robbins. The gratitude points shouldn’t all be “my career” and other abstract items. Temper those with something simple and concrete.
