10 More Instructions for Life

Saturday evening, the end of a rather great weekend and a quick moment to look back and think about it – could these two days have been better? Well, I could have won the lottery, found a few golden rings… or not. This life should be all about humans, not things, so let’s forget about our daily burdens and move to those quick 10 instructions for life I got here today, shall we?

Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for our convenience, not the caller’s.
I totally agree – I hate phones. I sometimes miss important calls, but it doesn’t really matter. I own the phone, not the other way around.

Be a good loser.
I’d rather not be a loser at all. When I lose, I always do my best to see the best part of it. Defeat must not be embraced, it just needs to be translated into a victory. As always, it depends on the viewing angle…

Be a good winner.
Of course I am. I usually allow my competitors to live… 😉

Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
I don’t have to do this. I keep my secrets to myself. That’s why they are called “secrets,” I guess…

When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
Ehem, I don’t think I get hugs from hot chicks every day. Sometimes, it’s better to avoid some hugs in the first place.

Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
I sometimes think I’m too modest for my greatness. Seriously.

Keep it simple.
Use a hammer, smash things. Simple as hell. I am using a computer and a mobile phone that has a touchscreen and uses two SIM cards. Too late, can’t say these are simple things. You want to keep it simple, go live in the woods. Not a bad idea at all, if you ask me…

Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
True, true. Even more, always beware of becoming such a person!

Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.
Rather cryptic advice, but pretty good, no matter how you put it.

Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets
… or “Live fast, die young,” but clearly not my thing. I am almost 32, so already older than a lot of notorious people who lived by the rule above. Better regret stuff than not being able to regret anything, if you ask me…

I guess that’s all for today. As usual, don’t hesitate to drop your (non-spam, if possible, please, thank you) comments below. 😉
