Seven life lessons I have learned in 70+ years (Note added Nov. 7, 2011. Thanks to blogger 鲍得海
who provided excellent Chinese translation for the first six lessons


1.Happiness is a positive derivative
【乐观是向上的! What I mean is that if your life is constantly improving, you cannot help but be happy.

2.The only investment idea you need if you are not a professional "Save, Buy,
Diversify, and Hold"; The worst enemy of investment – your emotion and greed"
【作为普通人,只需要知道一个投资理念:“储蓄、购买、分散投资、长期持有”】
【投资过程中,最坏的东东是:“冲动和贪婪”】

3.The world is full of people as smart as you are. Thus if you want to stand out
- write and speak well.  For ideas you only need one Jesus, but it take billions of missionaries to spread the word

【世界上聪明人很多!如果想要胜出,就要多写、多说!想出好主意只要耶稣一个就可以了,但却需要千万人去传播】
(行动原则)

4.The world is full of people as smart as you are. However many are self-centered
on things interesting to them. Thus if you want to stand out, be people-oriented.
Put yourself in others' shoes.
【世界上聪明人很多!但大多数人只关心自己感兴趣的东东。如果需要胜出,最好能多站在别人的角度看问题。】
(换位思考原则)

5.Remember the 80-20 rule. Among other things if your life is 80% perfect, you
need the other 20% to keep you in perspective.
【谨记80-20原则。如果您觉得自己的人生仅仅是80%完美,那么,余下的20%的不完美,将是您成功的必须!】
(得失原则)

6.No one promised you a rose garden. The world does not owe you a living
【世界并不亏欠您任何东东!】
(谦卑原则)

7.     There is a difference being a nice guy and being a doormat. The former is based on
your own initiative while the latter is something others do to you. (note to Chinese readers:
"Being someone's doormat" means others constantly wipe their dirt on you. You are
always being humiliated)

Unfortunately, I don't always remember to practice these
lessons 100 per cent of the time.
