    How this works: Each post has to follow the numbering and be genuinely helpful or humorous. One point per post. Posts can be as long as you'd like. The only posts not apart of the list should be quotes (no comments). Yes, I invented this idea. Links are allowed. Let's get this started...

    If you want to get the "most out of life" then you must be intentional about living in "community" with others. Life is not a "lone ranger" event. Take the time and make the effort to build authentic relationships. This only works if you allow others to know the real you and you are the kind of friend who allows others to be who they really are without fear of rejection. Don't pretend to be something you're not, don't be afraid of what others might think, and don't be selfish in your relationships. When you put others first and genuinely are "for them", you will be amazed at the joy life has to offer. Stuff doesn't matter, people do. :)

    #16) Fill your days with a job you find rewarding.

    Everything else flows much easier once you've got that one nailed.

    17. Be selfless, help others, stop trying so hard to be happy and just start living your life and DOING things. Less thinking and analyzing and worrying and more DOING. Surround yourself with like minded people with similar goals/ethics/aspirations...people that genuinely care about your well being and want to see you succeed.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

    Spend more time living, less time working or doing overtime. When your on your death bed, the last thing you'll be thinking about is your work or money, the ONLY thing your think about is the memories with family and friends.

    Totally agree.

    And add the soil, oceans, plants and animals to the the things that matter.

    ----------

    Interesting post.

    I both agree and disagree with almost everything in it.

    I could understand that. On one hand, it feels good and "right" to be selfless...but on the other hand, if you're trying to live YOUR life to the fullest, sometimes you need to be selfish and do what satisfies YOU above all else.

    Surrounding yourself with similar, like minded people can be comfortable and enjoyable...but it doesn't really challenge you or open you up to other points of view/ideas/etc.

    And there is a fine line when I say "less thinking, more doing". I still believe you need to make logical, rational choices...I'm not saying you should be the stupid 20 year old girl who NEEEEEDS that puppy because it's so damn cute, so without thinking she goes out and gets a puppy, only to discover 2 days later it's a pain in the ass and you can't just smother it and kiss it all day, and it pees and poops and whines all day. I mean if you want to start exercising, if you want to join a club, if you want to start a business, if you want to get involved in projects, if you're tired of being single and want to find a partner...rather than overanalyzing it and convicining yourself you're not capable or it's a "bad time", just jump in and start DOING things...make some action, take some steps. Instead of thinking about who and what you need to be to attract that perfect mate, just go about your life, do the things you enjoy, and you'll feel more at peace and you'll find that things just have a way of working out when you least expect.
