If you pay attention, you’ll pick up some profound pieces of wisdom as you go through life. You tuck that bit of wisdom away and never forget it. Sometimes it’s something you were told that you thought was worth keeping, other times it’s a lesson you learned from experience. Like I tell my kids, “You learn from your mistakes, but it’s less painful to learn from other people’s mistakes.” See, I’ll never forget those exact words, and neither will they. Kevin Kelly turned 70 years old on Thursday, and has picked up some real gems of wisdom along the way. Kelly took the opportunity of his birthday to share 103 things he’s learned in life, and they are all good things to remember. Here’s a sample:

• You will be judged on how well you treat those who can do nothing for you.
• The biggest lie we tell ourselves is “I dont need to write this down because I will remember it.”
• Cultivate 12 people who love you, because they are worth more than 12 million people who like you.
• Aim to die broke. Give to your beneficiaries before you die; it’s more fun and useful. Spend it all. Your last check should go to the funeral home and it should bounce.
