The Best Life Advice Thread
#1
I thought it would be cool to have a thread of just general advice from a diverse group of people on this thread. I'm sure we all come from different backgrounds and experience and have different advice to offer.

So here's what I'm thinking: on this thread just give us some advice on life (basically anything!)

Then if anyone needs advice, they can come to this thread and as well as succeeding at finishing their degree they will be succeeding at life as well.
Goal: Bachelors Degree By September 2019 84/120

Suffering comes from the difference in how we wish things were and how they really are.

I can control very few things. I can influence more. But for most things, I must learn to accept them.

Everybody gets the same 168 hours per week. What are you going to do with yours?

"All models are wrong, but some models are useful." G.E.P. Box

Worklife is a multarity. We rush to proportionately balance the things we want to do for a living, where we want to do it, and how much you want to earn doing it. Those proportions can change over time...and back again.

There is no "work/life balance." This is zero-sum thinking; that one must be sacrificed in favor of the other...and then back again. Actually, it's all one thing: life. Seek work/life integration instead, where work is play and play is work.

When you consult, sell, work, or do anything for a customer, one balances quality, price, and speed. The customer can articulate two of these; the third is a function of the first two. If you want it good and fast, it will cost more. If you want it fast and cheap, it won't be so good. Etc.

Give advice, but attach no strings. Advice is given, not lent. Do not expect people to accept and follow it.
