Princioms

Here are all of my princioms, collected from my posts.

For the uninitiated, “princiom” are a portmanteau of “Prince” (that’s me) and “axiom”, my Princioms are the axioms that I choose to live by, and you, reader, should adopt.

Princiom #1: When doing anything, ask yourself, “Can what I’m doing now make me any happier or better?” If your honest answer is no, move on and do something that will garner an answer of “yes” when asked the same question. Inspired by Tolstoy’s War and Peace

Princiom #2: My goal in life is to reach the point where I am exalted and happy from the time I rise to the time I go back to sleep, every day.

Princiom #3: There is no substitute for self-esteem. No amount of love, praise, money, or distraction can cover up a lack of self-esteem.

Princiom #4: Never, ever, ever, burn bridges with a friend. You never know when you’ll need a helping hand later in life. If you must cut contact, do it peacefully, quickly, and civilly – no drawn out arguments or shouting matches.

Princiom #5: When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive–to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. –Taken from Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations
