50 Things Every 18 Year Old Should Know

50 Things Every 18 Year Old Should Know

I found this list and liked it. I don't agree with everything on it, but I liked it's practical wisdom. Just think of the terrible issues you could avoid if you took this list to heart! And if you're younger/older then 18 I think most of this list could still change your life . . . if you let it. I'm going to reflect on it for the week. A few of the ones I really liked:

7) "Don't have any children or get married until you can support and love yourself first." -- D-Vega

24) Don't ever loan your friends money if you want to keep them as friends. After all, if they were good with money and were likely to pay you back in a timely manner, they probably wouldn't need the loan in the first place. If they really need the money, you want to help them, and you can afford it -- just give it to them.

35) "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn

43) At a minimum, keep a basic "to do" list, a schedule, and a budget.

I especially agree with #24. I think even the Bible says that.. give money to a needy person without expecting it back, and there won't be any hard feelings.
