List #21. The best advice you’ve gotten.

Now this list is particularly difficult for me to compile as I am a great adopter of ideas and advice; when I say adopt I really mean to say assimilate, there is no resistance, it is futile; the best ideas are stolen and if someone gives me good advice it very quickly becomes the advice that I give to others as if it were my own.

  • Everyone has to learn
  • There are no stupid questions only stupid answers
  • Just try to be ever so slightly less inept than your colleagues
  • You only get something out if you are willing to put something in (multiple times in multiple scenarios (work, relationships, bank accounts, skills and crafts)
  • Don’t act on other people’s advice, listen, understand, make your own decisions and then act
  • Make your own decisions
  • If you want to be lucky, be prepared to take every opportunity that comes your way
  • Never say ‘No’ immediately, listen then (if appropriate) say no.
  • Look after number one
  • Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you
  • If you don’t love yourself how can you expect anyone else to
  • Laugh at yourself

Laugh at yourself

  • Love life, it is the only one you’ve got
  • Retain a child-like wonder about the world
  • Cherish difference
  • Loathe falseness
  • Love those who are what they are
  • Variety is the spice of life
  • Love the skin you’re in
  • Learn something new every day

Etc., etc., etc., I could go on and on.

I’m following a couple of brilliant bloggers (Lori at She’s Awake & Chrissa at A Little Wicked) who are undertaking a blog challenge to write 50 lists that will lift your spirits. I love lists, I like having something to blog about and I love them, so I’ve decided to join in.
