Remember: Making money is incidential to living live. Living life is not</p><p>incidental to making money. So, say NO to excess work (incl. social work).</p><p>15. Keep an open mind and listen if anyone gives you competent medical advice. In</p><p>fact, one should constantly look out for such advice. Ive seen many a people die</p><p>because they ignored / ridiculed suggestions on health. Remember, health is</p><p>wealth.</p><p>16. Religion, satsang, chanting, give great support to your mind to calm down</p><p>17. Meditation can make mind very strong and relaxed. Seriously try it out.</p><p>18. Good hobbies eg gardening, pets, light reading, sports are a relief for mind.</p><p>19. Keep a good circle of friends, who can also advice you correctly. Mix with</p><p>positive people. Good words lift you up. Bad words create stress.</p><p>20. WORK: Systematic planning, staff training, and extensive delegation, regular</p><p>review reduce your load. Focus on your work, which earns you money.</p><p>21. Live in the present and enjoy every moment (most people do not do this). Dont</p><p>carry negative feelings of the past, nor worry about the future. Similarly, if you</p><p>swim against the tide everytime you will tire out. Learn to flow with the tide.</p><p>22. Criticism: Learn to ignore destructive criticism, whereas utilize constructive</p><p>criticism. Do not take anything to your heart. Forgive and forget. Move on.</p><p>V.IMP: You do not have to respond to every negative remark / comment anyone</p><p>passes on you. Learn to smile &amp; ignore. (Smile solves a lot of problems silence</p><p>avoids a lot of problems).</p><p>23. Do only the right things in life and never do wrong (less strain on mind / heart /</p><p>conscience). More wrong you do, more tension. Control greed.</p></li><li><p>8/14/2019 Steps Towards Better Life</p><p> 3/3</p><p>24. Family : A cared for spouse and well brought up children are greatest strength.</p><p>25. Celebrate now and then: Birthday, anniversary, success, fathers day, wifes</p><p>birthday etc. Celebrations keep you and fly in a cheerful mode.</p><p>26. Always look at the big picture and big things in life as well as in work. Pay less</p><p>attention to small things. Unfortunately, Many people do the reverse.</p><p>27. You cannot and need not win every argument, use LATD concept. Lets agree</p><p>to disagree. Tell the other person about this concept.</p><p>28. How you say is more important than what you say. Be polite. Never hurt ego</p><p>of the other person. Hurt ego spoils everything.</p><p>29. Always be hopeful: (a) Time heals almost everything. Give time, time. (b)</p><p>However good or bad a situation is, it will change.</p><p>30. Always keep an open mind on all matters and look for best practices in the world</p><p>and adopt them soon (whether in office, at home etc.)</p></li></ul>
