8. Travel to wherever your curiosity pulls you.

9. Read biographies and auto-biographies of people who capture your attention.

10. Turn off the technology and just go where the moments take you.

11. Be impossible to define by anyone but yourself. How? Never stop growing, learning
and searching for new knowledge about yourself and the world.

21. Choose your friends wisely. Then, nurture, nurture, nurture.

22. Appear to live effortlessly. Part of what makes someone attractive is the mystery.

24. Practice self-discipline.

25. Become observant of all that goes on around you. So much can be learned.

28. Dress for the occasion.

29. Turn routines into rituals to be enjoyed.

30. Keep a record of your thoughts. And then review what appears regularly.
