Seven life lessons I have learned in 70+ years (Note added Nov. 7, 2011. Thanks to blogger 鲍得海
who provided excellent Chinese translation for the first six lessons
1.Happiness is a positive derivative
【乐观是向上的！ 】What I mean is that if your life is constantly imporving, you cannot help but be happy.
2.The only investment idea you need if you are not a professional "Save, Buy,
Diversify, and Hold"; The worst enemy of investment – your emotion and greed"
3.The world is full of people as smart as you are. Thus if you want to stand out
- write and speak well. For ideas you only need one Jesus, but it take billions of missionaries to spread the word
4.The world is full of people as smart as you are. However many are self-centered
on things interesting to them. Thus if you want to stand out, be people-oriented.
Put yourself in others' shoes.
5.Remember the 80-20 rule. Among other things if your life is 80% perfect, you
need the other 20% to keep you in perspective.
6.No one promised you a rose garden. The world does not owe you a living
7. There is a difference being a nice guy and being a doormat. The former is based on
your own initiative while the latter is something others do to you. (note to Chinese readers:
"Being someone's doormat" means others constantly wipe their dirt on you. You are
always being humiliated)
Unfortunately, I don't always remember to practice these
lessons 100 per cent of the time.
