    1) If something is confusing to you, ask, because you’re not the only one who feels that way. You’ll be doing others a favor by asking.
    2) My dad once told me: Be patient. If you look at a problem long enough, you’ll figure it out. I have found this to be true many times.
    3) My dad also showed me, through example, that beauty can be found in really simple things, and unexpected places, so keep your eyes open for it, or you’ll miss things. He used to go to the garbage dump and bring back metal scraps which he would weld and machine into art objects.
    4) If you see someone in pain or who needs help, stop and find out what’s going on. Empathetic action is always noble and good.
    (or so I’ve been told!)

    So ends my Confucius moment…

    As much fun as it might be to imagine..... headbutting can't solve most of life's problems.

    When with a woman (as with politics), don't speak unless it improves the silence...

    Ok, what i've learned:

    1 - Be graceful and ask for help if you require it .. They won't think bad of you
    2 - Even mom's fuck up .. Treat them as humans and not as role models
    3 - If your needs are not being met, speak up.
    4 - Know when to throw in the towel and take that first step to something different
    5 - You life purpose doesn't need to be defined or pinpointed .. Enjoy the 'now'
    6 - If your scared of something, take a deep breathe and go for it .. You never know where you'll end up .. You may surprise yourself.

    Love the people in your life enough not to try and control them. People are not puppets; they are not pawns. They don't exist so that your needs may be met (unless you are a child and even then, up to a point). If you do it, you need to ask yourself why you do it. If it's being done to you, pull the plug.

    Procrastination is a huge motivator if you have a deadline. Which is exactly why it shouldn't be relied on.. how many things truly have a deadline in life? Only the things that really don't matter.

    Take notes. This "life" thing is the longest learning experience you'll ever have.

    When your tiller/mower/chain saw/small-engined-whatever won't start, see if it's got fuel in it. Then if it still won't start, before you do anything else, change the spark plug.
