When I'm sixty four
It was about seven weeks ago when my eldest gave me a laptop computer for my birthday. a computer and a book. the book was "be excellent at anything" by Mr. Tony Schwartz. I read thr book and found the idea's in it inspiring and in the same time simple to acomplish in your day-to-day life.
When I looked for Mr. schwartz on Google.com I found his website and also an article about the twelve most important lessons he has learned in his 60 years. He's words and ideas are very much like mine only I never wrote them, just taught my sons to live by them.
These are Mr. Schwartz's lessons, ans I recommend to everyone to look for his words in youtube.com and learn about ways to improve yourselves:
1. The more we know about ourselves, the more power we have to behave better.
2. Notice the good.
3. Let go of certainty. The opposite isn't uncertainty. It's openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides
4. Never seek your value at the expense of someone else's.
5. Do the most important thing first in the morning and you'll never have an unproductive day.
6. It's possible to be excellent at anything, but nothing valuable comes easy and discomfort is part of growth.
7. The more behaviors you intentionally make automatic in your life, the more you'll get done.
8. Slow down. Speed is the enemy of nearly everything in life that really matters.
9. The feeling of having enough is magical. It rarely depends on how much you've got. More is rarely better. Too much of anything eventually becomes toxic.
10. Do the right thing because it's the right thing to do, and don't expect anything in return.
11. Add more value in the world than you're using up.
12. Savor every moment — even the difficult ones. It all goes so fast.
