Must-Read: Rules for 2013
We’re going to take the rest of the day, and also tomorrow, off from posting here on the site for pretty obvious reasons. Those reasons, being, that we’re, of course, going to drink a whole lot and hang out with our best pals as we bring an end to this fine year. But besides a year ending, the New Years celebration is also about new beginnings. It’s about seeing what you screwed up the previous year, working to fix that, and then becoming that person you want to be next year.
So today, we’re heading over to AskMen.com, where they have a vital post that is going to help you this year become the man that you want to be. It’s entitled 20 Rules to Live By and they are, indeed, 20 rules to live by. Memorize and actually perform every one of these to the best of your ability, and 2013 will not help but be graceful and enlightening for you and yours. For example, here’s number one of the list of perfection:
1. Don’t hate based on differences
There is plenty of stuff worthy of hate in this world. There is no shortage of wicked, wretched evil that catches my ire. There are battles worthy of fighting. Each battle I enter into requires me to think, using a moral compass to judge how I feel and the position I should take. Hating someone for being different from you, or hating a concept or thing because it’s not what you’re used to, or because you don’t understand it, is stupid, distracting, harmful, a waste of energy, and, well, evil. I’ll hate you for it.
So simple, yet something that we don’t always remember. Head on over for the other 19, print that sucker out, laminate it, stick it on your wall, read it every day, and there’s no way you’re not going to have a great 2013. See you next year, everyone!
