10 Instructions for Life – The End

I hope you didn’t grow tired of this miniseries yet, because today we are going to talk about the last 10 instructions for life from that article I discovered some time ago on Amazing Posts. These being said, let’s cut the introduction and get straight to the real thing, shall we?

Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.
I usually sleep at that hour. No, scratch that, I ALWAYS sleep at that hour. Nevertheless, the notepad and pencil are always great to have around, no matter what!

Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.
Totally agree with this. Too bad a lot of people seem not to care about it…

Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.
Neah, better send chocolate. 😉

Make someone’s day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you.
While this sounds great, I think it’s better not to have a car at all and make the whole world a better, safer and cleaner place, don’t you agree?

Become someone’s hero.
While this seems to be a really difficult task, I think it’s enough to have a baby and be a good parent – that’s usually enough for your child to consider you his/her hero.

Marry only for love.
… sure, only that some marry for the love of money. Other than that, the statement above is perfect.

Count your blessings.

Compliment the meal when you’re a guest in someone’s home.
If there’s something to complement, I always do. I love good food so much, that sometimes I almost believe I live to eat, not the other way around…

Wave at the children on a school bus.
Just try not to do this while you’re driving a car or riding a bike, all right?

Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people.
That’s one of the reasons I am not the president of my country yet – I usually hate dealing with people.

Don’t expect life to be fair.
… but don’t be unfair to the ones around you just to fit in this landscape, all right?

I think that’s all for this set of 50 instructions for life. Don’t be shy and drop some comments, all right? Nobody holds the ultimate truth, but let’s try to reveal it, at least… 😉
