Guide to a Better Life

I got this in an email from my buddy, Ajay:

Guide to a Better Life
by Dr Randy Pausch



 Personality


1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 

2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment 

3. Don't over do; keep your limits 


4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does 


5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip 





 6. Dream more while you are awake   

7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
 

8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
 

9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
 

10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present 


11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you 


12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. 

Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. 


13. Smile and laugh more 


14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 


Community


15. Call your family often 

16. Each day give something good to others 


17. Forgive everyone for everything 


18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6 


19. Try to make at least three people smile each day 


20. What other people think of you is none of your business 


21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch. 


Life


22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do. 


23. GOD heals everything 


24. Do the right things 


25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change 


26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up 


27. The best is yet to come 


28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful 


29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it 


30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy. 


While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with, people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.   

Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.
