1) Always have a quest.
2) Don’t feel the need to justify your opinion.
3) Cut your expenses in half. Then cut them again.
4) Don’t die without any scars. Like Tyler Durden advised.
5) Remember that everyone wants to feel important.
6) Don’t fall into “the busy trap.” It’s okay to not always be “on your grind,” 24/7.
7) Learn something from everyone you meet.
8) Take more risks without fear of making mistakes.
9) Sweat every day.
10) Get Facebook and email off your phone.
“No one ever got rich checking their email more often.”
– Noah Kagan
11) Never “grow up.”
12) If you haven’t worn something in more than two months, get rid of it.
13) Send more handwritten notes.
14) Not everyone will like you. You need to be okay with that.
15) You don’t have to respond to every Tweet, email, call or text message. That’s a form of slavery.
16) Question authority.
17) Learn to do something artistic – paint, draw, play an instrument.
18) Keep your cell phone off the dinner table.
19) Get punched in the face at least once. Everyone needs that. (Keeping your phone on the table is a good way to facilitate that)
20) Say “please” and “thank you” more than everyone else.
21) Repeat a person’s name aloud when you first meet them.
22) Never waste time arguing on the internet.
23) Carry a book with you wherever you go. A real book.
24) When you’re with friends or family members, be with them 100%. Don’t think about work or check your phone.
26) Never discuss how much money you make.
27) Go for a walk every day.
28) Be the first one to try everything.
29) Slow down.
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
– Lao Tzu
30) Don’t watch the news. It’s depressing. If something important happens, you’ll know.
31) Tell your friends you love them.
32) Smile before you pick up the phone and say “hello.”
33) Give advice only when it’s asked for.
