in the down position. Never refuse homemade brownies. Strive for
excellence, not perfection. Plant a tree on your birthday. Learn 3
clean jokes. Return borrowed vehicles with the gas tank full.
Compliment 3 people every day. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone
you love them. Leave everything a little better than you found it.
Keep it simple. Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures. Become
the most positive and enthusiastic person you know. Floss your teeth.
Ask for a raise when you think you've earned it. Overtip breakfast
waitresses. Be forgiving of yourself and others. Say, "Thank you" a
lot. Say, "Please" a lot. Avoid negative people. Buy whatever kids
are selling on card tables in their front yards. Wear polished shoes.
Remember other people's birthdays. Commit yourself to constant
improvement. Carry jumper cables in your truck. Have a firm handshake.
Send lots of Valentine cards. Sign them, "Someone who thinks you're
terrific." Look people in the eye. Be the first to say hello. Use
the good silver. Return all things you borrow. Make new friends, but
cherish the old ones. Keep a few secrets. Sing in a choir. Plant
flowers every spring. Have a dog. (Or cat) Always accept an
outstretched hand. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every
area of your life. Wave at kids on school busses. Be there when people
need you. Feed a stranger's expired parking meter. Don't expect life
to be fair. Never underestimate the power of love. Drink champagne for
no reason at all. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation.
Don't be afraid to say, "I made a mistake." Don't be afraid to say, "I
don't know." Compliment even small improvements. Keep your promises no
matter what. Marry for love. Rekindle old friendships. Count your
blessings. Call your mother.
