Rules to Live By

I just read an article in Entrepreneur magazine that gave some rules for having business meetings in bars.  Some I agreed with, some I didn't, but it got me thinking about the rules I live by.

1. Never have your picture taken with a drink in your hand...unless it's champagne.

2. Don't eat or drink anything blue.  It's not natural and gives me a stomach ache. 

3. When it comes to clothing, a size too big is better than a size too small.

4. A polite "no thank you" to an invitation you do not want to accept is better than telling a lie to get out of it.

5. When uncertain, over dress rather then under dress for an occasion.

6. Quality wins over quantity when it comes to friends. 

7. Life is too busy to spend time with people who are disrespectful.

8. Be extra kind to pedestrians and animals.

9. Food and drinks should be plentiful when having a dinner party...better to have too much than too little.

10. Don't get drunk in front of co-workers...not even at the company party.

11. Don't pack luggage any heavier than you can carry. 

12. Never ask someone to taste something to see if it is bad.

13. Questioning whether food has gone bad or not? When in doubt, throw it out.

What are some of the rules you live by?

My current rule to live by: life is too short to spend it being angry or sad. Work on it and get on with living!

Honesty is always, always the best policy.

True friends will be there for you when you really need them. Everyone else doesn't deserve your time.
