Another List — and much needed, for me.

Fantasy fiction fans out there will recognize this list at the Code of Dinotopia. Fictional as the world may be, I find these to be some pretty fantastic rules to live by.

  1. Survival of all or none.
  2. One raindrop raises the sea.
  3. Weapons are enemies, even to their owners.
  4. Give more, take less.
  5. Others first, self last.
  6. Observe, listen and learn.
  7. Do one thing at a time.
  8. Sing every day.
  9. Exercise imagination.
  10. Eat to live, don’t live to eat.
  11. Don’t put off til tomorrow what can be done today.

Which of these do you struggle to maintain? (For me, it’s number seven.) Which come more easily to you?

One thought on “Another List — and much needed, for me.

  1. Great list … thank you! I am definitely best at #6. I am always keeping my senses open to take in whatever the world is offering me. And I most certainly have the most difficulty with #11. There’s a reason it’s last on the list. Sometimes I think I procrastinate my procrastinating 😉

    I saw a bumper sticker that had some short words of wisdom that go along with these thoughts:

    “Wag more, bark less.”

    Just something to add to your list if you so desire … have an inspired day!
