Chicken soup for the blogger

Inspired by Jack Heald’s advice
to his teenage son
, I jotted down some of the things I’ve learned in life—things
I would tell my teenage son if I had one.
These are based on experience, not revelation, so they may change in
the
future.
Feel free to leave your own cheesy one-liners in the comments.

work
If a thing is not worth doing well, it’s not worth doing.

pain
Hardships do not build character. Your response to them is your
character.

God
God is not an idea. He is your Creator, and His existence does not depend on
your belief.

faith
Hold on to what you know, not what you feel.

women
A belief that you have women figured out is the surest sign that you don’t.

friends
It’s harder to have one close friend than 20 casual friends, and therefore
better.

dating
Some women are drawn to jerks. You will save yourself a lot of grief by not pursuing
those women.

family
You are the leader of your family, not the boss. Be the kind of man they
want to follow.

marriage
Figure out what makes your wife feel loved, then do it. A lot.

sex
If sex is not a glorious mystery to you, you don’t understand it at all.

blogging
Not all your posts will be insightful. Some will be downright lame.
