Suggestions

Here are a few suggestions based on lessons I have learned along the way. They may or may not work for you. They work for me.

  • Eat dessert first.
  • Be the last to let go of a hug.
  • Tell the special souls in your life you love them, even if they can’t say it back.
  • Compliment the drive-thru people at your favorite fast food restaurant.
  • Sit on the floor when you talk with little kids.
  • Put money in someone else’s parking meter.
  • You don’t have to forgive people who hurt you. But don’t give them any space inside your head.
  • Model the behaviors you expect.
  • Turn “thoughts and prayers” into action.
  • Question everything; especially what you think is true.
  • Keep learning.
  • In life, give without the expectation of return.
  • At work, go the extra mile. Demand what you’re worth.
  • Doing good things will make people distrust your motives and attack your character. Keep doing good things.
  • Remove yourself from the unacceptable.
  • Bullies are hurting on the inside. Stop them from hurting others anyway.
  • Live and love like it’s your last day on earth. Plan and plant as if you will live for ever.
  • Your older friends will all eventually die. Make younger friends.
  • Be kind. It is the highest from of wisdom.
  • Seek inner peace and happiness. It is the best revenge.
  • Your life is a body of work, not a single incident.
  • Be who you want to be, no matter what others say. That person is pretty amazing.
