One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

10/8/13

Tell the truth, even when it doesn’t want to be heard.

Listen to silence.

Be counterintuitive.

Make enemies friends.

Wear flip-flops.

Support locally owned restaurants.

Think outside the box.

Take alternate routes.

Chew intellectual cud.

Run a car out of gas on purpose.

Read by miniature Christmas lights.

Eat with your neighbors outside.

Make the mundane entertaining.

Hope everything happens the way it does.

Read every book that won the Hugo science fiction award.

Turn a few options into numerous possibilities.

Enjoy possibilities of what could be.

Begin at a goal and prepare backward.

Slow down.

Make routine trips adventures.

Simplify and minimize.

Forget what you give.

Value what you get.

Return what you borrow.

Replace what you break.

Own more of what lasts longer
and less of what doesn’t.

Give anonymously.

Forgive quickly.

Consult wisdom,
learn more than one way,
do more than hope,
question the status quo,
accept responsibility,
rise above and control emotion,
stand up going down,
and overcome.

Teach.

Do the most good, in the best way,
with as many people for as long as possible.

Respect,
listen,
question,
reflect,
accept,
balance,
affirm,
praise,
and improve by helping others.

See good in everything.

Publicize the best in others.

Do the right thing when no one’s looking,
leave others better off for having known you,
and the world a better place than you found it.

Want
happiness,
joy,
bliss,
harmony,
and get wet in warm summer rain.

When eyes close,
think of the good that was and why,
and dream of making others’ dreams come true.

Sing,
laugh,
cry,
don’t worry,
let go,
feel good,
love,
and have fun.
