Everybody always thinks he is right.

Helping other people helps me.

If I want to explore a new direction professionaly it is helpful to try it out for myself first.

Keeping a diary supports personal development.

Low expectations are a a good strategy.

Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.

Money does not make me happy.

My dreams have no meaning.

Obsessions make my life worse and my work better.

Starting a charity is suprisingly easy.

There is no moral reason to have children.

Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid, I have to live now.

Trying to look good limits my life.

Worrying solves nothing.
