Last week I asked you about your favorite life lessons from this list
1. You can’t change other people, and it’s rude to try.
4. The cheapest and most expensive models are usually both bad deals.
6. Bad moods will come and go your whole life, and trying to force them away makes them run deeper and last longer.
 11. Every problem you have is your responsibility, regardless of who caused it.
14. Managing one’s wants is the most powerful skill a person can learn.
17. Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours.
55. By default, people think far too much.
65. It’s easy to make someone’s day just by being uncommonly pleasant to them.
70. Nothing — ever — happens exactly like you pictured it.
Regrets
I recently read “Stumbling on Happiness”. This book explains what happiness actually is and what makes us unhappy. It helps to better understand reality. A really good read!
People think they will regret foolish actions more than foolish inactions. But studies also show that nine out of ten people are wrong. Indeed, in the long run, people of every age and in every walk of life seem to regret not having done things much more than they regret things they did, which is why the most popular regrets include not going to college, not grasping profitable business opportunities, and not spending enough time with family and friends.
Remember Everything You Read
Here are some tips on how to intensify engagement with books:
To better remember content, take a blank sheet of paper and write down what you know about that subject. You can write it in bullet points. When you later come back to what you’re reading, go to that sheet and skim it – it will prime your brain for what you’re going.
