Discover the Rules of your Life

I have spent some time reading several mind stimulating articles as well as blogs today. Then I found these:

Leo Tolstoy wrote the Rules of Life when he was 18.

#1 Get up early (5am)
#2 Go to bed early (9-10pm)
#3 Eat little. Avoid sweets.
#4 Try to do everything by yourself.
#5 Have a goal for your whole life; a goal for one section of your life, a goal for every month, a goal for every week, a goal for everyday, a goal for every hour and for a minute, and sacrifice the lesser to the greater.
#6 Keep away from women
#7 Kill desire by work.
#8 Be good, but try to let no one knows it
#9 Always live less expensively than you might.
#10 Change nothing in your style of living even if you become ten times richer.

I actually like Rule #4 and Rule#7 is what makes you different from other people.

Marion Winik's " Rules of the Unruly"
It is a perfect copy of memo above the desk to keep you on track:

1. The path is not straight
2. Mistakes need not be fatal
3. People are more important than achievments or possessions
4. Be gentle with your parents
5. Never stop doing what you care most about
6. Learn to use a semicolom
7. You will find love 

What are yours??
