Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If someone doesn’t understand something you’re explaining…
If someone doesn’t understand something you’re explaining to them, treat it as your fault for failing to explain effectively, not their fault for not understanding.
2. If you constantly vent your problems to someone, make sure to also call them when things are going well.
Good listeners can sometimes get overwhelmed, and it’s nice to hear positive news.
3. Learning a new language
If you want to learn a new language, figure out the 100 most frequently used words and start with them. Those words make up about 50% of everyday speech already (!) and should be a very solid basis.
4. When using Pandora, never use thumbs up, only thumbs down.
This will keep the station constantly looking for something you like while avoiding things you don’t like. It also keeps it from playing the same 10 songs over and over.
5. If something bad happens in your life, don’t let it define who you are.
Don’t make it your excuse for not progressing yourself. Don’t undermine it, learn from it, understand it, and let it be apart of you without it being who you are.
