A Day in the Life

Life transformation inspired by The Beatles


"Lennon was the soul of the Beatles, Harrison was the spirit, Paul was the heart, and Ringo was the drummer." (George Martin)


I love this joke.

Obviously, because it’s funny.

But, also, because it’s a great way to think about how to create your best life.

Reframe Ringo’s contribution, and you’ve got yourself an invaluable set of daily practices.

Let’s call them your Fab Four commitments.

❤️ To your heart:

This is about emotional intelligence. Self-awareness. Empathy. Connecting human to human. Say ‘PS, I Love you’ to someone close to you today.

🔥 To your soul:

Speak your truth – stand up for a cause you believe in. It’s everything from writing to your local MP to small acts of kindness. Every little thing you do counts.

🙏 To your spirit:

See you’re connected to everyone and everything else. Talk a walk in the park and learn from the trees how to slow down and let it be. Wake up on a spring morning, singing ‘Here comes the sun’☀️

🏃‍♂️ To your energy: the drumbeat of your life

Look after yourself. Eat healthily. Get fit. Do things that energise you. Yesterday is gone. But today you can start something new. It’s often easier with a little help from your friends.

💭 Now imagine 

What if this joke didn’t just make your life better: what if it improved a day in the life of a million people?

Wouldn’t that be something?

A joke that changed a million lives.
