    You can be right and be unhappy or you can say that you are wrong and be happy.

    I went through a 10yr stretch chasing different hobbies. Lots of money, lots of time, and nothing to show for it.

    I wish I had that time & money back, and/or I wish I would have invested that same time & money into something with more lasting value.

    Treat every good-bye as if it were the last one you will have with that person because that may actually be the case.

    When I was in college, money was tight, but I always had a few bucks. I was driving home from NC to DC and I stopped for gas. This guy was in a U-haul with his wife an kids and didn't have money for gas and asked me if I could spare a few dollars. I just said no and walked away. That haunts me to this day. I could have filled his truck up and given him money for lunch and it wouldn't have hurt me one bit. I was just a dick.

    On the other hand, about 10 years ago I was riding my motorcycle to Florida and stopped at a rest stop. Some woman came up and asked me for gas money. She pointed to her car and there were a couple kids in it. I can't imagine how desperate she was to come up to a big long-haired, bearded biker to ask for money. I gave her $40 (almost all the cash I had) and she almost cried. She said I was the only one that wasn't rude to her. I guess I put a little in my Karma bank, but I've got a lot to make up for.

    among many others: don't decide you're going to "quit music" and sell all your gear including that one special guitar. because in about 2 months you'll have to buy everything back, but that special guitar will not come your way again.

    Almost every lesson is the hard way for me.
    I must enjoy pain.

    You'd think I would've learned this the first dozen times. :confused:

    Nothing like mistakes can teach you better.

    Have become moderatly wiser since. I was younger.

    Had some common sense for starters.
    But it needs daily training and reminders.

    So I always go like this: you are an idiot, what can you do differently?!
