I have a sign in my office I can read right now as I eat my lunch.
“21 Suggestions for SUCCESS” and it has things like “Give people more than they expect, and do it cheerfully”, “Be decisive, even if it means you’ll sometimes be wrong”, “Become the most postive and enthusiastic person you know”, “Don’t do anything that wouldn’t make your Mom proud”, “Stop blaming others, take responsibility for all areas of your life”, and so on.
You know what the #1 thing at the top of the list is?
“Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.”
I think that is 100% true.
...I wouldn’t mind the entire list! :)
