    Go to (and complete) college right out of HS. Take a major in a field that will be around for many years like engineering, an accountant, an architect, etc.

    Learn to be a good listener early in life

    Save money and invest smartly

    Buy a decent home as early in life as possible, as much as I could possibly afford.

    Give all people a chance, even if they're a different social class, different IQ level, different type of personality, or people who have made mistakes all can add value to your life, even if you only keep them as distant relationships.

    Stay on the good side of all family members. Ignore their moments.

    Go for a wife that has a great personality over looks.

    Be frugal, save, but have fun in life, if that means buying a surf board, go ahead, have fun.

    Make a goal list every 5 years with goals for 6 mos, 1 yr, and 5 yrs

    Have fun!

    Even though you may hate it, save money. Be very honest and read the New Testament. Read and travel a lot. Keep your passport current. Speak your mind politely. Understand that life on Earth is only kindergarten and God has lots more for us in Heaven. Do not buy, rent. Never marry, the world is overpopulated and your kids aren't going to make it better, much as you'd like to think otherwise. No drinking or drugs. Prayer works, be careful!

    Don't be some one else's sidekick, you learn more by talking less and look for an occupation that pays off big when you retire and stick with it.

    Don't drink and do drugs. Eat less junk food. Read the New Testament. Find a good church to attend. Pray about everything. Trust God.

    Avoid religion. It's a scam. Get an education. Trump can't take THAT away from you.
