If you are familiar with the show My Name Is Earl, you may know Earl's philosophy (or formula for life) is: do good things good things happen, do bad things and bad things happen. Lying in a hospital bed, under the influence of morphine, Earl develops a belief in the concept of karmic retribution when he hears about karma during an episode of Last Call with Carson Daly. Although Earl's character is not perfect, nor is his way of viewing karma, the show gives a good example of how to apply a simplistic formula to our daily actions.
My formula changes nearly each day to be something like 'serving others' or 'improving myself for personal growth' to 'just let me get through the day'...and every variation in between. More often than not I get caught up in the volume of my voice as an indicator of success: the shorter my fuse, the louder I get. But I am trying to see a bigger picture and apply the pertinent details/emotions/actions into my formula instead of letting my fuse dictate my reactions. In general, I'm just trying to be a better person.
I remember that I pinned something very pertinent to this post, and it is actually a free printable made by Tai from taidyeoriginal.blogspot.com. Enjoy :)

May you find a formula that works best for you (to live your life by) and find happiness in the journey! And have a fabulous weekend :)
