follow your fear

prepare don't plan

do what you say

know what you don't know

don't hold yourself to other people's standards

own a pet

call your parents

create a comfortable living space

be happy for other people

cultivate friendships

stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves

understand what realistic expectations are

don't lie

get to know your gut and then listen to it

say you're sorry before you're too embarrassed to

always wear clean underwear

be on time

be nice to receptionists

appreciate other people's talents

identify people who don't have your best interests in mind

people will disappoint you

people will amaze you

people will inspire you


you will disappoint people

you will amaze people

you will inspire people

don't drink too much alcohol

remember that the old lady who's taking forever in line is someone's grandma

be curious

ask questiolns

give yourself a break

have truthful conversations with yourself

think about your day in the shower

reflect on your day before you fall asleep

reward yourself from time to time

silence can be golden

have someone you admire evaluate your handshake

be humbly confident

smell good

don't let the highs be too high, so the lows aren't too low

get to know you

learn to like you

let people love you

no one does you better than you

want what you have and you'll have what you want

lead with justice and judge with mercy
