1. "Love life — it is short. Be grateful for everything. The biggest burden you’ll carry is your own thoughts. Learn to live in the present. The past is just a memory and the future is just your imagination."
2. "No one really cares what you do — and the sooner you can accept it, the sooner you can be at peace with yourself."
3. "Take care of your knees and back."
4. "Fail more. Fail all the time. Set yourself up for failure. Because what you will learn is that failure is not some horrible catastrophe, it's actually part of a process of getting better at something or getting what you want. And going ahead into failure is often how you find yourself unexpectedly succeeding faster than you expected. The more you fail, the more you immunize yourself against the fear of it so you can get more of it. Failure is something you actually need in your life to really get the things you want."
"Adding 'Fail fast' to this list. Don't postpone the inevitable longer than you should by hoping something might change or work out. The sooner you can pivot past a failure the better!"
5. "Once you're out of school, don't keep the friends who bring you down. You really don't need that and the benefits no longer outweigh the drawbacks. You know who I mean: the friends who only call when they need something, the ones who make you feel bad when you fail and worse when you succeed. The friends who encourage you to do things you actually don't want to do and discourage you from growing as a person. Focus your time and effort on your high-quality friends. It's not about quantity anymore."
6. "Stretch every day or at least more than never. Stay limber and flexible because once it is gone, it’s almost impossible to get it back."
"As somebody who's on middle age's doorstep, I stretch 10-15 minutes daily and lift weights several times a week. It makes a huge difference as everything gets tighter when you get older. I feel a difference if I go a day or more without stretching."
