- Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today.
- Never spend money before you have it.
- Never buy what you do not want, because it is cheap,
- Never complain and never explain (Your friends don't need it and your enemies will not belive you anyway.)
- Never trouble trouble, 'til trouble troubles you.
The one lesson I can recall from my own student teaching days was this:
Never promise or threaten a punishment or reward
that you can't deliver!
So what do you think of these ideas?
- Is it better to put off some things until tomorrow?
- Does the judicious use of a credit card make spending money you don't have a good idea?
You get the idea. Maybe Thomas Jefferson was sometimes wrong.
It may be better to leave a bit of wiggle room as you pass along advice.
I try to do that. Do you?
Oh, yes, one final thought--never say ALWAYS, either.
