When people are rambling about their emotions you have to be quiet and not offer solutions because they are too wrapped up in how upset they are to solve problems.

On New Year's Day, don't fall into the trap of thinking your life has just magically changed because it's the start of a new 12-month cycle. If you want to change your life, you have to do it yourself, it won't just happen.

Major life events (death of a loved one, natural disaster, etc.) are a good time to defrag the mental hard drive, recalibrate, assess the current trajectory and maybe release a patch. Server maintenance.

Be careful, who you trust.

"Life as a highly sophisticated strategy game" actually works pretty well as a coping strategy.

Regret over not taking a risk often hurts more in the long run than taking the risk and failing. If you never allow yourself to make mistakes, you can't learn from them.

I wish I'd figured that one out a lot earlier in my life.

folk who have attended AA meetings have doubtless heard that "failing to forgive somebody means that you are letting that other person live rent-free in your head."

abe lincoln famously speechified, "It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words:

"And this, too, shall pass away."

How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!"

If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this glass of wine, this universe, into parts--physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on--remember that nature does not know it! So let us put it all back together, not forgetting ultimately what it is for. Let it give us one more final pleasure: drink it and forget it all!

- Richard Feynman

It's better to be real and lonely, than it is to be fake and popular.

My Motto from experience is "It's more than zero".

Any progress is greater than no progress. One step is farther than standing still.

Anything you do will either yield success or failure. Through success you gain results and rewards, through failure you gain experience and knowledge of that one way to fail (and there are many).
"If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward".
Thomas A. Edison

All is not lost, when you lose a partner, and time heals.
