  1. Give. Never take. Never want to take. Never ask anybody for anything.
  2. Never whine.
  3. Read. Everything.
  4. Value time. And being disciplined. These are no-brainers.
  5. You will never cherish being lazy.
  6. Purity. Honour. Truth. Honesty. Integrity. Dignity. In thought, word and action. Above everything else. If you're not there yet, try and you will.
  7. Ego. Desire. Anger. Renounce the ego. Desire and anger will disappear on their own.
  8. Value people and relationships. But don't go overboard with it.
  9. 'Silence is golden'. There's a reason why it's a proverb. Don't talk unless necessary. Allow for meaningful conversation to happen, but don't go looking for it.
  10. You will never cherish watching TV.
  11. Write. Everyday.
  12. Hold your tongue. Don't gossip. Never speak ill of others.
  13. Never give in to the lure of "cool".
  14. Be warm, to everyone. But don't be stupid.
  15. Help when asked for. Venture advice when asked for. Don't be presumptuous. But learn to judge when someone wants help or advice but is too proud to ask for it. Develop and use your discretion in such cases. After having helped/ advised, forget about it.
  16. Learn from the past. Then forget it.
  17. Be grateful. Always. Even for the tiniest of things.
  18. Respect everybody. Trust nobody.
  19. You don't know everything. You haven't experienced everything. You're not God's gift to mankind.
  20. Everything passes.
  21. Patience is a virtue. So are resilience and persistence.
  22. Dream.
  23. Eat well. Sleep well. Stay fit.
  24. Refrain from judging. You're the pigeon one day, the statue the next.
  25. Watch children. Listen to the squirrels. See birds fly. Gaze at the stars. Look at colours deeply.
