Life's too complicated, does anyone know how to make it simple in three easy steps? All the knowledge in the world seems to exist on this forum, there must be an answer in here somewhere? :)

Good one pageoneresults! :)

Here it is:

1) Store all wordly possessions except your air mattress.
2) Move out of apartment/house.
3) Live on a beach in the Caribbean! ;)

Hmmmm. On second thought, better not do that. I just did and the sand flies and mosquitos are killing me. Actually, I am living in a 45 foot container (on the beach) together wih a lot of sailing equipment and my dog.

Some may think this is fun. If so, you are sick. Probably too young and can't appreciate what having a nice home with a comfortable bed, TV, kitchen and bathroom means. Especially the bathroom!

#1 - Quit customizing your computer and using specialized apps. If it isn't truly "plug n play" and/or it doesn't work straight out of the box, forget it. Also, if you have to read documentation, that's a bad sign. A really good app should infuse you with high level of innate ability when you first open it. (The *ONLY* exception to this rule is UltraEdit, which does work straight-away, but the more you dig around in the drop-downs ....wow!)

#2 - Only eat in restaurants. Good restaurants, preferably, but even a mediocre restaurant is far simpler than food prep at home.

#3 - Quit worrying about cars, the simple life requires a pickup truck. But, buy a mini-van, put the rear seats in storage and just use it like a truck. Do nothing but drive it for 70k miles. Then, at trade-in time, clean it out, reinstall the seats, get a great trade value. Repeat cycle.

1. Never stress about stuff you cant change.

2. Always change the stuff you stress about.

3. Dont buy a house on top of a hill if you dont have a car.

People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them that Benjamin Franklin said it first.

Buy yourself a cemetery plot, complete with headstone, and go visit it with flowers once a week. Any problems you may have swiftly fade away.

well,

1.setting your goals/standars pretty low eliminates a lot of problems and makes life a lot easier ;)
2. just "go with the flow"
3.certain humans of opposite sex can make your life a little easier/happier (many married peopel would disagree with me i guess :)

You dont need to be married to feel this way, JonB. Living with girlfriend alone will do. ;)

1) Don't use windows. Linux/unix is harder but it will do exactly what you want it to do. Every time. Until *you* change it

2) Stop worrying about what people think of you. Lifes too short. If you want to know what they think, ask them

3) In general -- the harder way to do something is often simpler.

Macguru, so by saying that are you saying actually that people respect what you have just said more because you said that benjamin franklin said it first.? :)

WebmasterWorld Senior Member macguru is a WebmasterWorld Top Contributor of All Time 10+ Year Member



Yes thats the idea.

But remember lawman said it first. ;)

When you tried all of the above, here is what left.

1 - Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.

2 - Use empty toilet paper rolls to store appliance cords. This keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.

3 - Put celery in aluminum foil when storing in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

So hypothetically i could say to my boss a an idea and he would respect that idea more if i said the it was benjamin franklin said it first. And that I was just elaborating on it or something.
12:27 pm on Dec 3, 2002 (gmt 0)



Back to the original topic:

To make your life easier, tell your boss that all your ideas are someone else's. Obviously not a colleagues, cos theyll just get your job, but someone famous that you boss will respect.

This way he or she will come to expect less of you in the future and you will have a much simpler working life. ;)

benjamin quotes:

To find out a girl's faults, praise her to her girl friends.

this benjamin has some interesting idea!

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade.

hm, why is he talking like YODA?

Well done is better than well said.

well said..um..i mean well done!

he has some very smart sayings on that page.

Did Benjamin Franklin said anything about toilet seats?

3 Easy Steps:

1) Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

2) It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.

3) If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Bonus Step:

Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your mouth is moving.

I think this one might apply...
