25 Secrets to Happiness

I think I've put this up before but it's very important.

25 Secrets to Happiness

1. Listen to your wife
2. Admit when you make a mistake
3. Stop having to assign blame
4. Listen more, talk less
5. Strive for excellence, not perfection
6. Don’t make excuses
7. Don’t be argumentative
8. Get organized
9. Be kind to kind people
10. Be even more kind to unkind people
11. Make time to be alone
12. Make good manners a priority
13. Be humble
14. Return everything you borrow
15. Try to do something nice every day without ‘getting caught’
16. Be on time
17. Let someone go ahead of you in line
18. Reread your favorite book
19. Realize and expect that life isn’t always ‘fair’
20. Know when to say something
21. Know when to be quiet
22. Try not to criticize anyone for a whole day
23. Donate blood
24. Live beneath your means
25. Give away clothes you don’t wear anymore
26. Learn from the past, plan for the future, live in the present
Okay, it’s 26 because I thought the first one should be NUMBER 1

Although I try to achieve all of them I have particular trouble with #3, #4 and #21. How about you?

They are all good words to live by but also very hard to live by.
