I Like Lists Of Rules

They provide a framework for many things. I have over the years collected a list of rules with my friends, They are half serious and in the sprint of fun. Also they are incomplete and not inclusive. While rules can help you life is often too complicated to be completely governed by rules,

The list is currently:

Everything has a cost/price.

Never sit with you back to a door or window

Never surrender your weapon

Never trust a naked woman - beware he/she who shows too much

Our reality is the only reality of consequence.

Always keep your poker face

Be kind until the time not to.

Show strength always to your enemies

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer

Make your opponents do want you want

There is no teacher like an enemy

Be effective at anything and everything you choose to do

Anything you do, choose to do it.

Beware the man that does not drink

You get what you pay for.

There are costs other then money.

Beware naked men dancing in the woods.

nice saying

"Never sit with you back to a door or window" that's one I am going to remember from now on. Never thought of that!

Plenty of good old common sense (& a dash of humor) -- Thanks so much for sharing!
