THINGS THAT ARE DIFFICULT BUT IMPORTANT AND WORTHWHILE

  1. Not treating others like characters in a story where you are the main character
  2. Putting human interaction above material success
  3. Reading James Ellroy's Underworld USA trilogy
  4. Getting some exercise everyday
  5. Giving people the love they need instead of the love you want to give them
  6. Waiting for the right moment instead of frantically trying to force it
    I'm not sold on this one
  7. Admitting when you're wrong
  8. Sticking to your guns when you know you're right and no one agrees
  9. Washing your hands regularly throughout the day
