67 Short Pieces of Advice and a New Must Read Blog

I can’t believe I’ve been sleeping on Raptitude, a blog by David Cain, for so long.

I recently was sent this post about 67 pieces of advice and it’s pure gold.

Some of my favorites:

  • 11. Learn the difference between something that makes you feel bad, and something that’s wrong. A thing can feel bad and be right, and it can feel good and be wrong.
  • 15. Consciously plan your life, or others will do it for you.
  • 27. When someone disagrees with you, try to understand what needs and fears are behind their stance. Yours probably aren’t much different.
  • 37. Give classical music another shot every few years. (I recently did this and enjoy it)
  • 40. Picture yourself at your own funeral. Imagine what they are thinking.
  • 49. Once in a while, imagine that this moment is the very first moment of your life, and then build a future from there.
  • 60. Be extra kind to people while they are at work, especially servers, clerks, and tech support staff.

You should really check out the whole list. It’s that good.

I liked it so much I also bought his ebook on Mindfulness, which is something I’ve been trying to practice more of this year, and even went so far as to purchase a subscription to Headspace, which has been useful as well.

Open your eyes to Raptitude, you’ll be happy you did, and a better person for it!
