Instructions for Life

May 3rd 2007

I received the following “Instructions for Life.” Many of you may have read this before, but I thought I’d pass the list along for anyone who has not had the pleasure of reading it:
ONE: Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO: Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE: Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR: When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

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

SIX: Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN: Believe in love at first sight.

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

NINE: Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

TEN: In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN: Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE: Talk slowly but think quickly.

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

FOURTEEN: Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN: Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN: When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN: Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN: Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

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

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

TWENTY- ONE: Spend some time alone.
