Times are tough. And we can all use a little motivation and guidance right now. And you’re probably not going to get the best advice from your bar buddies or the guy in the next cubical who doesn’t know how to refill his stapler.
Instead you can access wisdom from people who actually know what they’re talking about on the new site FiveRulesForLife.com.
You’ll find pearls of wisdom rolled out like we like them: in short, quick bursts. No long “self-help” articles. No drawn out stories. No nagging about bad habits. Just some words of advice you can use – or ignore – from authors, CEOs, teachers and regular guys.
So, because I fit some of the categories above, here are my Five Rules for Life:
- Everything Dad told you was true.
When I was a kid I had no clue why he was so concerned about milage on the car, or what temp the thermostat was set at. Now? Crystal clear.
- Beware of the quiet ones.
This goes for women, pets, and potential employees.
- Always buy the first round.
You guys who wait until the third of fourth round, when some of the group has left or stopped drinking: we’re on to you.
- There’s no such thing as a good one-sided deal.
Whenever a guy tells you he’s got a deal that is incredibly beneficial to you, it’s guaranteed to only be incredibly beneficial to him.
- If it’s funny, laugh at it.
Forget political correctness. Laughter heals. And some of the funniest stuff is completely politically incorrect. Don’t deny yourself.
