1. People pay more attention to themselves than to you.
  2. Assume the best intentions.
  3. If you have nothing to lose, take the chance.
  4. Think thrice about decisions that cannot be undone.
    Twice is not enough.
  5. First impressions matter...
  6. ...but don't let your first impression of someone mar his/her image forever.
  7. If it's not a moral matter, it's just another opinion. Live and let live.
  8. Do something productive everyday.
  9. You don't hate it, you just haven't learned to love it yet.
  10. You don't suck at it, you just haven't practiced enough.
  11. Admit envy. Praising someone else can only make yourself happier, not sadder.
