( ͡ _ ͡°)ノ⚲ Nº159 Timeless Truths Don't Require Sleuths 🕵 🔎
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #159 • View online
Hello there! Thank you for tuning in & extra hello to a number of new subscribers this week. 👋 
It has been about a year since I last linked to David Cain’s Raptitude blog. But if you’re familiar with this newsletter, I love lists to kick off issues and David shared 88 important truths he learned about life in 2014. I picked 25 to share:
1. You can’t change other people, and it’s rude to try.
5. Everyone likes somebody who gets to the point quickly.
7. Children are remarkably honest creatures until we teach them not to be.
9. Yelling always makes things worse.
11. Every problem you have is your responsibility, regardless of who caused it.
16. Cynicism is far too easy to be useful.
17. Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours.
18. Whenever you hate something, it hates you back: people, situations and inanimate objects alike.
20. People embellish everything, as a rule.
21. Anger reveals weakness of character, violence even moreso.
24. Those who complain the most, accomplish the least.
25. Putting something off makes it instantly harder and scarier.
29. A person who is unafraid to present a candid version of herself to the world is as rare as diamonds.
31. If what you’re doing feels perfectly safe, there is probably a better course of action.
32. The greatest innovation in the history of humankind is language.
42. Getting truly organized can vastly improve anyone’s life.
52. Posture and dress change profoundly how you feel about yourself and how others feel about you, like it or not.
59. Try as we might to be otherwise, we are all hypocrites.
64. Words are immensely powerful. One cruel remark can wound someone for life.
65. It’s easy to make someone’s day just by being uncommonly pleasant to them.
66. Most of what children learn from their parents isn’t taught on purpose.
72. There are not enough women in positions of power. The world has suffered from this deficit for a long time.
73. When you break promises to yourself, you feel terrible. When you make a habit of it, you begin to hate yourself.
80. Breaking new ground only takes a small amount more effort than you’re used to giving.
83. The fewer possessions you have, the more they do for you.
All that being said, it’s impossible to lead a totally ethical life—but it’s fun to try. : )
