    Measure twice, cut once.
    When milling, take a conventional cut, then take .005" climb cut for the best finish.

    Put your best songs at the beginning of gig and at the end of the gig. Wait, if it's a bar gig, amend this to "set" instead of "gig." Who stays around for 5 hours? (Actually, I know the answer to that, painfully speaking.)

    When playing Blackjack - Always split Aces and 8's.

    If shoes are not comfortable when you buy them they probably never will be.

    Nothing good happens at the company Christmas Party past 10pm.

    Don't do anything you wouldn't want to see printed in the newspaper tomorrow.

    Speaking of environment: if you're not comfortable, neither is your guitar.

    Don't fling poo into a headwind. Or just don't fling poo at all.

    Always check for paper and that the toilet flushes properly when using the bathroom away from home. Learned from experience.

    Always drill a pilot hole.

    If you need to upgrade, you know exactly why you need to upgrade. If you're not sure you need an upgrade, you don't.

    If there's no stupid dude in the room, I'm it. (so I always find one...)

    I don't do things I'll regret on my deathbed...

    Always remind your audience that the more they drink, the better you play.
