36 Things That I Learned in 36 Years

  1. Honesty is the best policy but it is also the road less traveled
  2. Most things worth doing are not easy, which is why there are many people who never do anything worth doing.
  3. You can be happy regardless of whether you are fat or thin, but life is easier and more enjoyable when you’re in shape.
  4. To make a friend you must be a friend
  5. A friendly person is happier than an unfriendly person
  6. The satisfaction of doing a good job is worth the effort of doing a good job.
  7. The Bible makes an excellent instruction manual for life, regardless of your religious beliefs.
  8. That being said, God the Father is real and Jesus is Alive!
  9. The RedZone channel on a Sunday afternoon during football season is the greatest television channel known to man.
  10. We aren’t always good at what we love and we don’t always love what we’re good at. That being said, do what you love, you’ll be happier.
  11. All bathrooms should come equipped with waterproof speakers so that we can maximize the enjoyment of singing in the shower.
  12. No one will take you seriously if you don’t act like you take yourself seriously
  13. Hurt people hurt people
  14. Americans will never again be happy with a president elected by our current process. We must change things if we ever want a chance to elect a person with honor and wisdom
  15. Information < Knowledge < Wisdom
  16. No one is as ugly or as good looking as they think they are.
  17. Most philosophers are ridiculous and shouldn’t be taken seriously
  18. Cubism is not art, it’s rebellion
  19. It is better to give than receive…unless you’re the one in need.
  20. Treat your family well; no one will stick with you longer than they will.
  21. Choose your spouse wisely; there is no future in a relationship with a person who will not grow with you.
  22. I chose correctly J
  23. Love is the most beautiful emotion we have, lust is a pale imitation.
  24. Well-fitting clothes are extremely underrated
  25. Raising a child is hard work, even before they are born.
  26. Money magnifies a person’s character. It doesn’t change them, it just reveals who they are without restraints.
  27. If there is a way to lose a fantasy football game then I will find it.
  28. Leadership is learned and practiced. It is not something that you are born with.
  29. Consistency is the key to the success of every long term endeavor
  30. The smellier the fart, the greater the humor.
  31. Computer generated movie settings will never look as good as real or manufactured settings.
  32. Our experience as children influences the person that we become in life
  33. You have the option to choose who you wish to be and make it a reality. Choose wisely.
  34. There is no such thing as multi-tasking. Switching tasks quickly does not mean you are doing them at the same time, but it almost certainly means that you are doing each of them ineffectively.
  35. People who text and drive are showing a reckless disregard for the lives of the people around them.
  36. I have a lot to offer and it’s up to me to create the opportunities that allow me to be a difference maker.

  1. That was fun. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  2. #9 is the business! I’ve survived the sting of several disappointing Jags games because of NFL Redzone 🙂

  3. Unfortunately, still struggling with the futility of number 21. Staying in a bad relationship is like walking 5 miles a day…in a circle; you waste a lot of time, get tired as he##, and you get absolutely nowhere!
