You should read at least one book per month. This will improve your memory, expand your vocabulary and bring you knowledge in different areas.
12. Don’t Work Too Much.
Don’t think that working so much is something you should be proud of or brag about. If you spend most of your time working, sooner or later you will regret it. No one on their death bed ever thought “I wish I spent more time on that project at work”.

Concentrate on what you’re doing. If you are trying to do a lot of things at a time you can lose yourself.

Your ego actually hates you and wants to keep you apart from other people. It makes you selfish and rude. Don’t let your ego rule your life.
16. Minimize the Fear.
Realize that fear is natural but don’t let it obsess you. Recognize your fears. Write them down, it removes a lot of the power that we give them. Most of the terrible things that we think are going to happen, never do.
17. Don’t Procrastinate.
Thinking about not doing something that you know you have to do is always much harder than actually doing it. When doing something on time you feel fulfilled and proud of yourself.
