Life Hack, thanks Baz luhrmann.

So I stole the base for this from Pa, who got it from m. who got it from a., who found it in a Mayan tomb underneath the Titanic, or something like that,  but on the weekend of my best friend’s 50th birthday I felt an adaptation to what I have found to be a true Life-hack, deriven from years of being carried home out of bushes and back on board ship; all while never once being judged for not being able to show restraint, and loved as i am and have been allowed to evolve into, i thank you my friend.

There are people in this world that would die for me.   10-amazing-life-lessons-you-can-learn-from-albert-einstein
There are people in this world I would die for.
The truth will set me free, never lie.
People are not mind readers.

I must never hesitate to tell someone how I feel.

Life is short and people are not perfect.

I will forgive myself.

I will forgive others.

There is nobody else exactly like me, with my exact abilities, talents, and ideas.
I can help myself by helping those around me first.

The people I care about deserve to know it. I will show them how much they mean to me on a regular basis.
I will accept compliments and criticism openly and make educated decisions based on a weighted sum of the two.

Information is infinite. There are ideas, products and cultures I do not yet understand. I will always keep an open mind to new formulas.

I am in competition with one person, and one person only… myself. I am competing to be the best me.

True wisdom is the byproduct of life experience. I will seek as many real world experiences as possible.
Education involves self-imposed discipline. I can only learn if I want to learn.

I want to learn.

I am what I eat. My body is a machine that must be fueled properly if I intend to make it last.

I will think before I act.

I will always act.

I will never be reckless with another person’s feelings.
I will never let someone persist on being reckless with my feelings.
The three most important things in my life are my health, my family and friends, and my education. Everything else is secondary.
I will celebrate my successes.

I deserve it.

Money will only make my life easier if it is mine free and clear.
If I wake up several mornings in a row and hate what I am about to do with my day, I will make a change. Life is too short.

My attitude can change my reality.
If I want to remember it, I will write it down in a trusted location.

I will thank the people who have helped me, and I will return the favor as soon as I am able.
I will never complain about a problem. I will supply a solution instead.
I will listen more than I speak.
If I don’t know, I will ask questions.
Everything is nothing without happiness. I must do what makes me happy.

Time is precious. I will manage my time effectively.
Right now is the only guaranteed moment in my life. I will make the best of it.

I will stand firm by my values without senselessly promoting them.
I will never over-promise. I will over-deliver on everything I commit to.
I will always assess the situation and provide value where needed.
I cannot make someone love me. I can only be someone who can be loved.
I will always strive to be the best I can be, but I will never try to be someone I’m not.
I will always articulate my words so people understand me.

Everything I do is by choice.

There is always another option.

Less is more. I will get rid of the stuff I do not use.

My habits define my life.
I will always take ownership of my actions, or my actions will own me.
