There’s a simple exercise that has been made into a game that will help keep you healthy, happy and on the right track to achieving your goals and success.
I want to give proper attribution and credit to a friend and colleague of mine in one of my other businesses named Jay, who shared this with me at our business planning retreat.
This is appropriately entitled Jay’s Eponymous Formula for Success.
This list of simple daily health habits can help you feel better, healthier, happier and achieve your goals in other areas of your life.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep routines, so to make a simple game out of it can help you check things off and stay on track.
So the following is a success planner for daily success. Here’s the scorecard:
- Doing your affirmations, whether they be vocal out loud or written, you will get twenty total points.
- Drinking ten 8-ounce glasses of water per day will give you a total of twenty points and a handful of trips to the restroom.
- Exercise and sweating at least thirty minutes per day will give you twenty points.
- Not complaining at all about anything for the entire day will give you fifteen points.
- The simple act of smiling at three people or more each day will give you ten points.
- Schedule activities for tomorrow today; meeting success comes from planning tomorrow today. Doing this daily will give you another ten points.
- Taking your daily vitamins each day will give you five points.
So there’s a total of 100 possible points here.
Scoring a total of—
- 90- 100 Exceptional
- 80- 89 Way to go
- 70- 79 Almost there
- 60- 69 You can do it
- Less than 60 Poor (Get back on track!)
It is virtually impossible to not accomplish your goals and affirmations if you score 90+ points each day.
So give this a try, and see how small habits and healthy behaviors can be made fun and into a game to stay on track and build consistency.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep routines, so making a simple game out of it can help you check things off and stay on track.
Try doing the success game for a week and see the difference—or make your own version for the habits you want.
How did using a game mindset help you accomplish things today? Did it make it easier?
