I came across this and just thought I'd share it. It has nothing to do with Linux, specifically. Enjoy.
Live beneath your means.
Return everything you borrow.
Stop blaming other people.
Admit it when you make a mistake.
Give clothes not worn in 3 years to charity.
Do something nice and try not to get caught.
Listen more, talk less.
Every day take a 30 minute walk.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
Be on time.
Don't make excuses.
Don't argue.
Get organized.
Be kind to kind people.
Be kind to unkind people.
Let someone cut ahead of you in line.
Toke time to be alone.
Reread your favorite book.
Cultivate good manners.
Be humble.
Realize and accept that life isn't fair.
Know when to keep your mouth shut.
Go an entire day without criticizing anyone.
Learn from the past.
Plan for the future.
Live in the present
Don't sweat the small stuff.
It's all small stuff.

I'm pretty sure that the $DEITY I don't believe in understands that people are flawed and imperfect so as long as you try your best it will all be fine :-)

I read it three times and never saw that during the proofing. Oh well, my spellchecker is a child of the 60s. :bagoverhead:
