Rule 121. Don’t be a bean counter.

What’s a bean counter? Basically it’s an accountant. It’s a fine profession. I’m using as a pejorative here really to describe a personality trait as opposed to a profession. Don’t keep score in all of your personal relationships, it just makes people resent you and makes them think everything is a transaction with you.

Rule 116. Perception is Reality

Unfortunately kids folks don’t take the time to know you (at least not in the workplace). So how you’re perceived is what people use to paint their picture of you in their heads (i.e. YOUR BOSSES). Perception is reality kids, the quicker you learn this, the easier your life will be.

Rule 112. Your health is the most important thing in the world.

This quote says it all: Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
