September Pointers (1st of 8 posts)

taking ideasHere’s the 1st of 8 posts this September highlighting five random pointers or ideas I’ve come across over the years.

They’re from print or are things I’ve overheard. Each one stands alone and they aren’t in any order of importance. I feel that without attributions, each pointer is more impactful and useful. Because they ring true, they don’t need a known name for validation, plus I’ve often modified the wording to make it more clear to me.

– Create your own system, or be enslaved by another’s.

– Are you shooting for comfort and luxury, when all you need to make yourself happy is something to be enthusiastic about?

– There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.

– Be wary of keeping up with the Joneses which is really just the fear of missing out. Comparison is the thief of joy.

– Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.
