Top 10 Most Important Lessons in Life

John Lennon wisely told us, "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans."  The question, then, is how to keep perspective on what is important while you're worrying about other things that really, probably aren't.  To a question originally posted on Quora, pastor and former police officer Justin Freeman offers a list of "The Top 10 Things We Should be Informed about in Life."

Here's what we should keep in mind:

  1. Realize that nobody cares, and if they do, you shouldn't care that they care.
  2. Some rule-breakers will break Lesson #1.
  3. Spend your life with the rule-breakers.
  4. Money is cheap.
  5. Money is expensive.
  6. Learn the ancient art of rhetoric.
  7. You are responsible to everyone, but you are responsible for yourself.
  8. Learn to see reality in terms of systems.
  9. Account for the threat of "black swan" events.
  10. You both need and don't need other people.
  11. Always give more than is required of you.

A little advice and help along the way is never a bad idea.
