secrets of adulthood

Like I mentioned before, I just started reading The Happiness Project.  
Loving it so far.  

When embarking on her own happiness project, the author came up with her "Secrets of Adulthood".
Her "lessons [she'd] learned with some difficulty as [she'd] grown up".  
Could these be any truer?

From The Happiness Proejct by Gretchen Rubin
  • People don't notice your mistakes as much as you think.
  • It's okay to ask for help.
  • Most decisions don't' require extensive research.
  • Do good, feel good.
  • It's important to be nice to everyone.
  • Bring a sweater.
  • By doing a little bit each day, you can get a lot accomplished.
  • Soap and water remove most stains.
  • Turning the computer on and off a few times often fixes a glitch.
  • If you can't find something, clean up.
  • You can choose what you do; you can't choose what you like to do.
  • Happiness doesn't always make you feel happy.
  • What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while.
  • You don't have to be good at everything.
  • If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough.
  • Over-the-counter medicines are very effective.
  • Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
  • What's fun for other people may not be fun for you - and vice versa.
  • People actually prefer that you buy wedding gifts off their registry.
  • You can't profoundly change your children's natures by nagging them or signing them up for classes.
  • No deposit, no return.

Honest, right?
Back later with a Wine Night recipe!
