3.  Get that bass boat you’ve been dreaming about rather than investing in yourself and your future.

4.  Don’t travel.  It’s too expensive, too much trouble, and very risky these days.

5.  Don’t learn another language.  Besides, everyone is going to speak English sooner or later.

6.  Forget religious faith.  All that “mystery” is for the birds.  Believe in only what you can prove.

8.  Stop taking responsibility for your life.  After all, that’s what the government is for.

9.  Stop reading.  It’s a lot of trouble, books are expensive, and nobody’s doing it anymore anyway.

10.  Have great ideas, but don’t follow through on any.
