There is only one sensible thing to do with this empty existence, and that is: fill it. Not fillet. Fill. It.

2. Don’t Seek Happiness
3. Remember, It’s All Luck
5. Be Hard On Your Opinions
6. Be a teacher.
7. Define Yourself By What You Love
8. Respect People With Less Power Than You.
9. Don’t Rush.
