Instructions for life...

INSTRUCTIONS   FOR   LIFE

 1.Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
 
 2.Memorise your favorite poem.

 3.Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or loaf all you want.

 4.When you say, “I love you”, mean it.

 5.When you say, “I’m sorry”, look the person in the eye.

 6.Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

 7.Believe in love at first sight.

 8.Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

 9.Love deeply and passionately. You may get hurt, but it’s the only way to live life completely.

10.In disagreements, fight fairly. No name-calling.

11.Don’t judge people by their relatives, or by the life they were born into.

12.Teach yourself to speak slowly but think quickly.

13.When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

14.Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

15.Call a relative.

16.Say, “Bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

17.When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

18.Follow the three R-s: Respect for self, Respect for others, Responsibility for all your actions.

19.Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

20.When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

21.Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

22.Marry a person you like to talk to. As you get older, his/her conversation skills will be even more important.

23.Spend some time alone.

24.Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

25.Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

26.Read more books. Television is no substitute.

27.Live a good, honorable life. Then, when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

28.Trust in goodness, but lock your car.

29. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life. Do all you can to create a tranquil, harmonious home.

30.Im disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

31.Don’t just listen to what someone is saying. Listen to why they are saying it.

32.Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

33.Be gentle with the earth.

34.Pray or meditate. There’s immeasurable power in it.

35.Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

36.Mind your own business.

37.Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t close his/her eyes when you kiss.

38.Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

39.If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. It is wealth’s greatest satisfaction.

40.Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

41.Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

42.Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

43.Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

44.Live with the knowledge that your character is your destiny.

45.Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.


Well, people, let me hear your opinions...

...hmm, I see I was a bit too late...

...well, I must say that this is very nice set of general guidelines to try and live by. However, I certaintly don't feel it should be used as a step by step, instruction manual, such that if you mess up on one thing, it's all reuined...and even with some objects, you'de have to start over from the start...

...yet, a new beginning if sometimes much easier and effective than continuing to build up from nothing.

...in life I do try to follow a similar pattern, but it certaintly is extremely difficult sometimes to even fulfill just one point...ah, what imperfect beings we all are...

I'm sorry but two of your instructions are opposite to each other and only one of them can be done. I mean:
28.Trust in goodness, but lock your car.
33.Be gentle with the earth.
Do you really think that by having a car you are gentle with the earth? And this is a serious problem.

I use rule 13 since... Well, I don't know when I started to use that rule. But here's an example. Today, some girl in my class throws a piece of paper on my desk. There's a question on the piece of paper: "Do you like me?". Well, it was kinda hard to tell, so I just replied "Why do you ask?". Some other girl said that I was supposed to write either yes or no. So I didn't answer .

Maybe you can have an electric car...Or a solar powered one...And as for rule 28, it's the ideea that counts...If you think it clashes with something else, just use "home" instead of "car"...

Yes, Wyvern! It is in fact a serious problem. Pollution is the second biggest problem in the world today, trailing only the obvious war! Please read my thread on "Don't you miss the good old days" in the Tavern if you haven't already. It'd be interesting to hear your views...
