Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Best piece of advice I ever got was from Captain Ron: Don't bump into anything.

Follow that one rule and you can usually figure the rest out as you go.

Don't panic, the worst thing that could happen is you might die.

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

I am not sure if this is a piece of wisdom or not, but it works for me.

It was derived from my father's saying long ago when I was a teenager.

He said: Son, if you make a dollar, you must save 95 cents and only use 5 cents.
i did not listen to him exactly, but I did save 50% of my income always.

Derived from this:
Never buy a boat unless you are retired. Let's sail others boat.

I don't mind the bumping, it's the crashes is what I try to avoid.

How to handle a difficult situation... start by slowing down the problem.
