A Gigantic List of Life Lessons


This is a list of life lessons I’ve gathered.

  • Gratitude evaporates resistance. Any time I feel stuck, I engage in the expression of gratitude for several minutes. My mind, my smart phone, my brother, oxygen, the ability to experience emotion, taste buds, thumbs, flip flops, books, the internet, and anything else. By the end, I’m mega-productive.
  • Staying up until sunrise with good company is always worth it.
  • Merino wool socks are the best socks money can buy.
  • Social media is a lucrative tool but can become a costly addiction if not tended to.
  • Drinking a gallon of water per day is a good thing.
  • It’s never a bad time to make a paper airplane.
  • Sunlight is essential and generates vitality and optimism.
  • There’s nothing like kissing someone you love.
  • Dancing shamelessly = joy.
  • Walks are valuable. There’s a specific way to go on a walk that’s most valuable for me. When the purpose of the walk is just the walk, without any separate motive, the benefits emerge. The reason for the walk isn’t to focus, to think about things, to work through an issue, or anything that isn’t just the walk.
  • Having a car makes life much easier.
  • Doing nothing for a short while is a great way to figure out what you ought to be doing.
  • Reading is worth it.
  • Pomegranates are not worth it.
  • It’s always a good time to clean and shine your electronics’ screens.
  • Honesty and integrity are above all else when is comes to attaining self-respect.
  • Crying is healthy.
  • Diet is the number one factor in mental health. When I eat a ton of sugar and flour and garbage, I feel depressed and unproductive. When I avoid those things and fill my body with awesome vitamins and nutrients, I feel like a god.
  • Smiling makes people smile back.
  • Eating is a beautiful experience when it’s done without distractions.
  • True friendship only emerges organically.
  • A fast computer is one of the few material luxuries that legitimately improves mental state.
  • When you have to choose what you want or what others want for you, it is better to choose what you want, every single time.
  • Restaurant work isn’t as bad as it’s made out to be.
  • If you seem calm, people think you’re not doing something important.
  • You don’t have to pick what you’ll do with your life when you finish high school.
  • The best work appears when the person loves the work itself. Money and prestige will never produce the art of someone who loves what they do.
  • There’s nothing scary about the unknown, if you really think about it.
