Travel Tips for a New College Graduate II

1. Opportunity will arrive at the most surprising times.  When it does, run with it.

  2. When opportunity eludes you, put yourself out on the edge.  Take a chance.

3. It's at the edge where dreams come into reality, assisted by a secret formula of your own devising.  It involves just the right ratio of imagination to persistence, and shoveling lots of dirt.

4.  Never become too comfortable with your own success.  Watch your back.

5.  Don't be afraid to ask for help, but remember too many cooks spoil the soup...

...and that's why God created sushi.

Even so, the humblest meal, shared in good company, makes for a feast.

6. Imbibe with moderation.

7. Carry on the family traditions...

...but always remain true to your own unique vision.

8.  Time doesn't wait around.  It just keeps walking.  The journey calls for appropriate footwear.

9.  The pot of gold isn't at the end of the rainbow.

It's all inside your head.  Make the most of it.

10. Maintain your skepticism.

Don't believe everything you read.

It's your life story.  Write the very best one you can.
