Life’sense’ Advice

Posted By on May 5, 2005

I’ve often talked about sharing what I’ve learned through mistakes and success in a book. I’ve got a pile of notes that I’ve continued to add to over the years in this regard and thought I would segment them into a collection of thoughts or essays with the hopes of creating the book project I’ve always talked about.

The subject is something everyone uses after leaving home, or perhaps even before that. The idea is to share the wise decisions in regard to commonsense … “life-sense” … advice from things like what tools to purchase when your are young to avoiding the pitfalls of living above your means. Wise living and commonsense can use a few pointers and those tossing these thoughts around will find their lives happier and more comfortable.

My thinking is to combine practical ideas and decisionmaking with satisfaction and happiness at each stage of ones maturity. Occasionally my suggestions will refect ‘commonsense,’ but other times the ‘off the beaten path’ suggestions are a bit more radical. Anyway this is the place I will be exploring occasional thoughts for the project.
