365 happiness touchpoints.

Today, I receive an email from a colleague in KL who's moving on to another agency in the region. I've had the pleasure of meeting G in Singapore, when all the SEA planners went for training. I remember texting a friend saying, "puwejas na ito," when asked if there were any cute planners in the region. Hehe.

To mark his passage, he sends us a deck with his "proposed amendment to 360." My initial thought was, puta, aalis na nga lang, trabaho pa iniwan. Tsk. Instead, he leaves us his happiness touch points for each day of the year.

Here are some of my favourite touch points.

Everything starts off from be happy because today you celebrate ...
  1. Working better in Starbucks than at the office
  2. Real cocoa (No, not Milo)
  3. Eating with your hands
  4. Doing something beautiful and being the only one on earth who knows about it
  5. Polaroid
  6. That little fart no one will notice (and you could just not hold)
  7. Not taking things for granted
  8. Hugging
  9. The smell of the sea before you actually see it
  10. Second chances

What a thoughtful thing to do. And I love the touch points, especially #9. :)

I don't suppose it's because he's French? ;-) He's got all 365 of them.

I like #10. A second chance hardly comes around...

and second chances are difficult to give as well...

That brought a smile to my face :) Such a wonderful practice...finding things to celebrate each day :)

Ditto that. I believe that there's just too many things we forget to be thankful for each day. :-)
