10 Commandments for Simplifying Your Life


Here’s quite a good list I came across, written by a gentleman called Ian McDermott. What are your favourites and would you add anything to the list?

  1. Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
  2. Thou shalt not be fearful for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
  3. Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
  4. Thou shalt face each problem as it comes, for you can handle only one at a time anyway.
  5. Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration and self-pity, for they drain the life out of you…..
  6. Thou shalt not borrow other peoples problems, for they can take better care of them than you can.
  7. Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill – it is gone.
  8. Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking small ones, for a lot of tiny blessings add up to a very big one.
  9. Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own.
  10. Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you for they make very poor bedfellows
