Life transformation is that we all think of doing at some point. Life transforms only if we concentrate on our present, learn from the past, and believe in the future.

Let me tell you all this in some easy steps with one-minute life hacks that can surely transform your life.

Changes come with challenges. Change is inevitable. We cannot avoid changes to come in our life, some accept it, while some deny it.

But trust me, I have tried to fend from the changes, but we all have to accept it and face it in more positive ways. Following these one-minute life hacks even in the workplace can transform your entire thinking style.

Fulfill all your dreams & desires.

In my childhood, I used to dream of becoming a prince and having my own castle.

I’m sure many of you have dreamt of something similar, but as we grow up, all our dreams start fading away.

One minute of dreaming and planning for your future, and taking some time at the office, can surely transform your life.

Take a one-minute walk.

A short walk can give you energy, just like a cup of coffee.

When you are done with your important tasks and meetings, get up and take a one-minute walk. You can do it with a colleague or alone. This one minute can transform your work performance and energy levels.

Go for it and see the difference for yourself.

You can try, DEAR time. When I used to work a full-time job, my boss told me about this smart life hack. It means Drop Everything and Rest. You can do this while sitting at your desk too.

Challenge yourself.

Challenges are a part of everyone’s life.

Challenge yourself for one minute to bring back the ample amount of energy for completing the task and regain the power to work.

Challenges can be overcome if we do it in a playful manner. So let’s play a game with your whole team in the office premises.

I am sure there are many people in the office who love to play badminton or maybe a game of basketball. Try playing a few games during lunch breaks in the office and see the positive change in yourself.

Minute to win.

In today’s competitive world, teamwork and maintaining enthusiasm at the workplace are becoming strenuous.

To beat the opposition employers, have keen cognizance of keeping the employees happier and motivated to work.

A minute can work wonders. It can either be a quick meditation session, a team play, a group activity, or else.

Set goals.

Small achievements allow us to accomplish more.

60 seconds can be helpful for setting and planning smaller goals.

Successful people always start small, but they are also visionaries and  see themselves at the finish line. Be it for  writing a book, completing a project, etc.

Small goals give a brief glimpse of the success outcome, which motivates us to  actually perform the task.

Eliminate negativity.

Negativity leads to depression and loss of identity.

Stop spending time with people who cannot inspire or motivate you. A minute with the right people, though, can bring joy, luck, love and happiness.

Clear the mess.

If we calculate it, it takes almost a minute to clear up the mess on our desk daily.

As you enter the office, take a moment to do so and then start your day fresh and with energy.

Setting aside this one minute for your desk can surely not just transform your life, but make you feel good and be productive till the evening.

Answer emails in one minute.

Read all the important emails one by one and reply back within one minute.

Avoid the emails that aren’t urgent or essential for that one important minute. You can read through them afterward.

Doing this quick exercise will not just save you time, but make you an effective worker too.

Stress buster.

As little time as one minute can be a stress buster for a joyful living.

With the tremendous advancement in technology, even a quick gaming session can be a stress reliever for many of us.

Balance your life.

Work is sacred but it’s equally important to balance your personal life too.

Pick up your mobile, dial your friends or well-wisher’s number for a minute to re-energize yourself.


In today’s world, everything happens fast and we lose the connection with our inner self. A minute of yoga and/or meditating is what we all need.

Meditation helps in 2 ways:

  • Focus: Breathing in and exhaling for a minute helps with regaining concentration.
  • Happiness: By meditating, you will feel much lighter and happier. When you are happy, you tend to be more motivated and optimistic.

In the fast-growing economy, many companies are adopting such one-minute life hacks.

Even our Prime Minister is focusing on getting the major benefits of meditation before getting to work for the day.

Don’t you think you should also adopt such practices?

It is rightly said that life doesn’t change in a minute, but taking a decision after thinking for one minute can certainly change your life. Take a deep breath and start your life more consciously.

Here’s an infographic to help you get the most out of the one-minute life hacks we talked about:

7 Quick Tips on How to Be More Successful in Everyday Life 6

If Life Were a Game, What Would Your Score Be? [FREE 10 Minute Assessment]

Everyone dreams about being successful. But what is success?

For you, it could be building a company, getting promoted at work, generating wealth, or more humble ambitions, such as being the best parent or partner. While success looks different to each person, we all have an innate desire to achieve.

No matter how you define success as an individual, here are some habits you can adopt to become more successful in everyday life.

1. Be Focused.

There are distractions all around us, from social media and smartphones to friends and family. While everyone needs some ‘me time,’ to be successful, you also need focus. As such, cut out distractions and set aside time to work towards your goal.

Remember: There is always something productive you can do.

2. Aim to Learn.

It can be easy to get hung up results but being successful is about more than the outcome. The key to being truly successful is about learning. This allows you to grow and adapt, changing your approach and leading to improvements. As such, make learning a goal. This will also help to keep you motivated, too.

3. Be Prepared.

Being prepared is essential to increase the chance of success. This can be applied to almost any situation. Whether you are expecting your first baby, have an upcoming exam or interview, or are considering CFD trading, all require research and preparation.

4. Stop the Excuses.

When something goes wrong, it can be easy to dig your head in the sand, but this is not a habit of a successful person. Instead, take responsibility. Stop your excuses, work on your weaknesses and make improvements. The onus is on you to be successful so step up, set challenges and drive yourself forward.

5. Be Happy.

You may be focussed on earning more money, or you may have a goal to buy a flash car. But if you’re working a job you cannot stand, putting in too many hours and sacrificing time with the ones you love, you could quickly start to feel miserable.

Increase your happiness and make it a marker of your success, even if it takes longer to achieve your goals.

6. Feel Grateful.

Success is often less about material possessions or goals than it is about changing our perceptions.

This is why it is important to start recognizing the good things around you. Recognise and feel grateful for what you already have and you will soon feel very successful indeed.

7. Start Failing.

This may seem counterintuitive, but failure is a big part of success. It helps to highlight the things we do not want and essentially provides clarity. A little failure never hurt anyone. After all, no one has ever become successful without first experiencing failure.
