BURNING CALORIES WITH EXERCISE
Exercise burns fewer calories than you think. It's a lot easier to "burn" calories by not putting the food in your mouth to begin with.

NEGOTIATING RIGHT OF WAY WHEN DRIVING
When driving, you can assume that any person travelling at faster than walking speed under their own power (eg. runners, cyclists) will always want to avoid stopping if your respective trajectories intersect. Therefore, if safe, you should cede right of way.

HOW AMERICA IS VIEWED
Liberals generally don't believe America is, or should be, the best country in the world. This is why they try to make America like other countries and try to "bring America down to size". Conservatives believe America is an example for the world.

CHILDREN IN RESTAURANTS
Don't take a table in a restaurant that's adjacent to any children under 12. They're a lot louder up close than they seem when you walk in the door. Restaurants know this, but they'll always try to put you at those tables because they're unpopular.

REJECTING THE FIRST HOTEL ROOM
When you check into a hotel, the front desk will give you the worst room they can get away with. (Because guests who check in later might be pickier than you.) So when you get the key, leave your bags and go inspect the room. Regardless of how the room looks, return to the desk and ask if they have anything else. 9 times out of 10, a better room will magically be available.

LIVE AS IF YOU ARE ON A STAGE
Anytime we are not alone, or are in a public place, consider our actions being captured on someone's smart phone, a surveillance or security camera. So, it's important to not do anything that we'd be embarrassed by Rolex replique. I know this sounds like a schizophrenic mind set, but it's part of today's world of technology.

RESTORING A CAR FOR DRIVING OR INVESTMEN
Cars restored for the pleasure vs. the investment value, are much quicker to restore, and cheaper. . . . and if the grand child spills his Coke in the back seat,. . . No meltdown. Decide on this prior to the restoration.

PREDICTING FAILURE OR SUCCESS.
Whether you think you can or you can't, your right. Henry Ford is credited with saying it but it's still a good rule today. We have a tendency to do things that would confirm our position of do ability. So, if it's something important that has to be done, assign it to someone that thinks it can be done.
