Monday Morning Match

We can all use a little help now and then, can't we? I know lots of people who swear by following "to do" lists or really feel like they've accomplished something when they can cross off things they have on their "honey do" list.

Checklists and systems are some of the best things to develop, create and follow if you want to achieve your goals.

So what if one of your goals is to create a healthy life? I received an email from a client of mine that is just one of these lists. Simple, funny and one that, if followed, will lead to success in some aspect of my life.

It comes from Regina Brett, a columnist with The Cleveland Plain Dealer, and was originally published in October of 2006. It is called Regina Brett's 45 life lessons and 5 to grow on. Here's the first 10 lessons...

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
