Happiness Requires Daily Effort – PART 3

 

“I’m too busy to tell people how busy I am.” – someecards

Charlie Munger, the long-time business partner of Warren Buffett, once mentioned that there are weeks when the only thing scheduled on Buffett’s calendar is a haircut. His calendar will literally say,

“Tuesday: Haircut day.”

Buffett also doesn’t use email or a smartphone.

Without an overly busy schedule, without email, and without a smartphone, he manages to run a company with $240 billion in revenue and 377,000 employees.

I think we all can be a little less busy.

This is the final part in a three-part series I’m sharing with you on using research from positive psychology to improve your well-being. Continue reading “Happiness Requires Daily Effort – PART 3”

One Size Does NOT Fit All – PART 2

 

One size fits all is usually one size fits nobody.

Whether it’s the optimal diet, the optimal way to run a business, or the optimal way to create happiness, no one single solution is best for everyone.

We’re all different.

Tailoring your approach to your uniqueness is the key to faster and longer-lasting results.

This is the second part of a three-part series I’m sharing with you on what I’ve discovered by digging deep into the research produced by the field of positive psychology.

For the first time ever, rigorous academic research is being applied to how we thrive as human beings – in short, how to be happy. Continue reading “One Size Does NOT Fit All – PART 2”

Stop “Looking” For Happiness – PART 1

 

You don’t find happiness, you create it.

I’ve been digging into the work produced by positive psychology researchers lately.

I find it absolutely fascinating.

I read Success Principles by Jack Canfield in my second year of college. Ever since then, I’ve been a voracious reader of self-help books.

The relatively new field of positive psychology takes scientific research standards and applies them to the field of self-help.

In the past, self-proclaimed self-help experts taught strategies they either made up based on their own experiences or based on the experiences of the limited number of people they had worked with.

They didn’t try to isolate what really worked and what didn’t using the same rigor that prescription drugs go through in research trials.

Positive psychology researchers do.

At this point, I’ve read thousands of pages on positive psychology. I’m going to share some of what I consider the most interesting findings…

First, you don’t find happiness, you create it. Continue reading “Stop “Looking” For Happiness – PART 1”

72% Open Rate: Our 163 Best-Performing Email Subject Lines

Here’s the formula for producing sales with email:

List size * open rate * click through rate * conversion rate * average order value

One of the easiest ways to dramatically increase the sales you make through email is by increasing your open rate.

Most people settle for a measly 10-20% open rate. In this post, you’ll discover proven email subject lines that have produced open rates as high as 72% (that’s 3-7X what most people get).

Open Rate Factor #1: The List

Are you guaranteed to get open rates as high as 72% just by copying one of the subject lines below? Absolutely not.

It’s hard to compare the open rate of one email versus another, even when sending to the same list.

A new list is almost always going to perform better (higher open rates). A list of customers versus prospects is almost always going to produce a higher open rate as well.

Also, how well you manage your relationship with your list and how good you are about removing unsubscribes and bad emails is going to affect your open rate too.
