Two-minute Tips for Turbulent Times with David Allen
I Am Unreasonably Joyful

Out of the box here… I Am Unreasonably Joyful.

That’s an affirmation I’ve actually used for many many years. And when I heard it, or when I thought of it, I thought, what a cool thing to do. To just take me out of the box. I’m unreasonably joyful.

Given the world we’re in, and especially the times we’re in being joyful about anything seems to be one of the hardest things to do. But if you want a real tip, to just kind of break yourself out of some of the code that we’re in. You’ll think better, when you’re happier, when you’re more up, when you have more positive energy. And so creating the affirmation to me, was a useful bandaid to use when things were like insane. When it made no sense to be joyful or happy.

And so it’s just a big tip. Give yourself permission, for at least a minute, to just pretend that there are all kinds of things to be joyful about. So, be unreasonably joyful. It’s a great thing to do. Also, learn to do that when you’re in these kinds of stressful up against the wall kind of times. It’s a great great thing to do. It’s a great tip. It’s a great tip I’ve used for myself, and still have to use on a regular basis. I’m unreasonably joyful, look at my peonies behind me, they so represent that. Ba Da!!
