Ed Gelbstein put together 10 useful rules that should be carefully considered for our daily life. They can be a practical guide for decisions we have to take or for improving our attitude.

Here are the en rules:

  1. Never fight with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it

2. Take advantage of every opportunity to keep your mouth shut

3. Never argue with anybody who wears a uniform

4. Never argue with an idiot. People watching will not be able to tell which of you is the idiot

5. It is easier to obtain forgiveness than to obtain permission

6. Don’t ask a question if you are not prepared to live with the answer

7. If you want a new idea, read an old book

8. If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there

9. Don’t adopt a philosophy of life that does not need courage

10. Never look back unless you intend to go that way
