Some Nifty Rules

I’m going through old documents on my computer and I’ve found some hilarious stuff, including an internship letter to the my current TV station. I really hope I get it! 😉 But I also just found a document with “rules” to live by. Now, I take issue with some of them, but I think there’s a conversation to be had and some things to take away from all of them. I did not write this and I don’t know who did. I’m sure it was some email that was forwarded to me or some MySpace post or something else from times past — maybe LiveJournal? Ha. Anyway, if you know who DID write this, I’d be more than happy to give them credit. Now, dig in…

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their
conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you
want.

FOUR. When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

FIVE. When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t have dreams don’t
have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only
way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer,
smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great
risk.

FIFTEEN. Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for
others; and responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps
to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your
voice.

TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone

  1. They are good rules, actually, and I can not say I have any big disagreement with these.
