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.
Understand what your heritage is and pay it the proper respect it deserves. Your family didn’t move across the world so you could forget who you are and where you’re from within one generation.
This may sound trivial, but make sure you behave at the gym. People who act like pompous, loud, arrogant, and all around jerks at the gym are showing their true colors. How someone behaves at the gym is who they are at their core.

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.
Kids never argue in front of others, whether that’s with your brother/sister or when you’re in a relationship. It puts your spouse down and really ultimately serves no purpose to argue in front of others. Handle your business behind closed doors in the privacy of your own home.
Everyone notices the little things in life. So whether that means picking up your friend at the airport or staying a little late to help the team finish something up, these little things go a long way in forging great bonds.
No one remains the same throughout their life, so you can’t expect people to always be the same. That applies to every relationship in life, everybody changes. So be accepting, nobody is perfect.
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.
