I found these rules to live by today and although I don't like the idea of rules I thought these ones were pretty ok for rules. These pre-date the commandments, in case you like that kind of information.

1. Examine life

2. Worry only about those things under your control

3. Treasure friendship

4. Experience true pleasure

5. Master yourself

6. Avoid excess

7. Be a responsible human being

8. Don't be a prosperous fool

9. Don't do evil to others

10. Kindness to others tends to be rewarded
