Past generations had it about right. Most of the old cliches about living the good life apply.
One should eat healthfully, get a full night’s sleep, exercise regularly, set priorities, not sweat the small stuff, spend a lot of time with family.
Follow your heart, plan ahead, never look back with regret, give it your all, not take life too seriously, try everything — you only go around once.
Live beneath your means, make new friends, but cherish the old ones.
Don’t expect life to be fair, never procrastinate, call your mother.
Most important: (1) choose your parents with care – they will provide the good genes and set you on the right path; (2) pick the right spouse — everything else pales by comparison.
