Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for our convenience, not the caller's. Be a good loser. Or everyone will hate you. Be a good winner. Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret. Especially if you want it to remain a secret. When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go. Unless the hug is unwanted. Be humble. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
Keep it simple. Beware of the person who has nothing to lose. Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Live your life so that your epitaph could read, "No Regrets.
Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them. Same reason as No. Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you. Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital, even if you can only stay for a few minutes. You won't regret it. Begin each day with some of your favorite music. Once in a while, take the scenic route. You'll often find more joy in the journey than the destination.
Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice. Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table.
Because the best ideas can strike at 3 a. Show respect for every job, regardless of how trivial. Because the job does not make the person. Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.
