1. Feeling accomplished after spending 90 minutes weeding the yard. I’m not a huge “gardening” fan – but there is something soothing about slowly chipping away at a situation, and seeing tangible results of the effort immediately afterwards. It feels good to allow order to emerge from former chaos.
2. Hearing a podcast about a man who had every reason in the world to feel alone – but who realized that in fact, none of us are ever alone. If you have 19 minutes and want to hear a humorous storyteller convey an incredibly interesting tale, I recommend listening to Mike Massimino’s “A View of the Earth”.
3. Receiving powerful wisdom from an unexpected source.
