It's none of my business what you think of me


Here in an excerpt from Marc Chernoff's article, 11 ways to uncomplicate your life


  1. Learn from the past, and then get the heck out of there! 
  2. Focus on what’s truly important.  
  3. Focus on being productive, not being busy. 
  4. Give what you want to receive. – You get the best out of others, and every situation, when you give the best of yourself.  Start practicing the golden rule.  If you want love, give love.  If you want friends, be friendly.  If you want money, provide value.
  5. Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – Don’t try to be friends with everyone.  Cultivate closer relationships with fewer people. 
  6. Do what you know in your heart is right.  Integrity is the essence of everything.  
  7. Organize your space. – Start clearing clutter.  Get rid of stuff you don’t use and then organize what’s left.  
  8. Be efficient. – Stop being inefficient simply because you’ve always done it that way.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.  Instead, streamline your life by finding better ways of handling common tasks.  
  9. Let things be less than perfect. – Smile every chance you get; not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have, and all the problems you know you don’t have.  
  10. Let go of needless drama and those who create it. – Never create unnecessary drama, and don’t surround yourself with those who do.  Choose people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it.  Don’t walk away from negative people, RUN!  Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.
  11. Forget what everyone else thinks and wants for you. – One of the greatest freedoms is simply not caring what everyone else thinks of you. The best thing you can do is follow your heart.  Take risks.  Don’t just accept the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what others will think, or afraid of what might happen.  If you do, nothing will ever happen.  

"Live your own life, for you will die your own death."--Latin proverb
