Although I’m relatively new to Jonathan Fields’ Good Life Project, it immediately resonated – deeply – with me.
Here’s a summary of the philosophy, in Jonathan’s own words:
Think of your life as three buckets.
The first bucket is called Vitality, and it’s about the state of your mind and body. The second is Connection; this one is about relationships. The third, Contribution, is about how you contribute to the world.
The fuller your buckets, the better your life. When all simultaneously bubble over, life soars. That’s what we’re aiming for. But the flip side is also true. If any single bucket runs dry, you feel pain. If two go empty, a world of hurt awaits. If all three bottom out, you don’t have a life. Figuratively and, in short order, literally.
A large part of this attraction to Good Life Project stems from where I’m at now in my own life, namely a deep search for personal happiness.
I jumped at the recent opportunity to become a Good Life Ambassador, and I’ll be sharing what I learn here in the coming months.
Meanwhile, this just arrived:
This is an advance copy of Jonathan’s upcoming book, but it can also be pre-ordered here. The release date is October 18th.
I’m really excited about this!
