Great advice in seven words or less

Dave Pollard has this interesting piece on some great advice in seven words or less. I am pasting his advice here:

  • Want affection? Offer genuine attention and appreciation.
  • To persuade someone, tell a compelling story.
  • For unqualified love, adopt a shelter animal.
  • Don’t try to do anything important alone.
  • First, understand why it is that way.
  • Do one or two things really well.
  • Find a need and fill it.
  • Know what problem you’re solving.
  • Never be indebted to strangers.
  • Find and do meaningful work.
  • You can’t change a culture.
  • Try not to try too hard.
  • Find where you belong.
  • It’s never that simple.
  • Be good to yourself.
  • Change yourself first.
  • Trust your instincts.
  • Buy less stuff.
  • Stop at one.
  • Think critically.
  • Pay attention.
  • Live simply.
  • Be yourself.
  • Just begin.
  • Never lie.
  • Reconnect.
  • Practice.
  • Imagine.

Other classic pieces in the comments are:

  • Why not?
  • Live and let live
  • Be true to yourself
  • Listen
  • Breathe
  • Challenge your assumptions

And mine:

  • Keep your cool
  • Be the change you wish to see
  • So what?
