Holy crap!!!!  I see alot of things I need to work on!  Looks like a great list and covers everything!

This is a great list!  Thanks for sharing.  There's plenty of things I need to work on as well.

Lists like these are fun, and can be reflective too. This one did make me think.

I wanted to point out that I disagree with 2 items: #34 and #44.

My problem with #34 is that I think respect has to be earned. I do however believe that everyone deserves some basic human decency. There is a guy here in Philly who I sing with on a regular basis. He's an asshole to lots of people, and he recently put me in a very inconvenient situation. I have lost respect for him. But I still treat him like a human.

#44 can be a trap. There can be only 1 best at anything. It is possible to excel, achieve, and master something to the best of one's ability.

Now, my favorite item on your list is #27. I did it, and it worked. When I was 23, I was still in college, making $400/week, with no savings. I met a guy who was 32, had a bachelor's degree from an Ivy League university and a master's degree from a prestigious technical university, worked for a software company, and had money in the bank and an investment portfolio. He was WAY out of my league. But 25 years later, we're still together.

I too thought 34 was wrong, perhaps poorly phrased. I think you should treat people as you would like to be treated yourself, until they prove they do not deserve your respect.

I'm fairly certain given the information in this post that we have mutual friends. I just hope that he isn't the asshole :P

An excellent list! Well played good sir. I shall be hanging this in the office and by the mirror. A nice reminder in the morning and all that.

Love it

Thanks for sharing

It is a good list but I have issues with the following:

18. There is nothing unmanly about leaving beer in the bottom of a glass if you are in a hurry.

19. Yes, I agree. But you need to tackle the root of the lack of confidence too.

29. This advice is pretty stupid in my opinion when it is taken by itself.

34. Respect is earned. You should treat everyone well unless they give you cause to treat them otherwise but respect is definitely earned. 

Other than those few points I really liked the list. 

That is a great list.
