This will be quick because I have to finish writing a paper.
1) Despite your best intentions, it is silly to try and plan to do things on a day you have a surgical procedure.
2) Things could always be worse. And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse…it will. Always be thankful for what you have.
3) Don’t be afraid to ask for help, but don’t abuse your friends. If you ask for help too much your friends will not think it’s very important when you ask a favor. If you don’t ask for help when you need it your friends will think you’re too proud to ask for help, or that you don’t trust anyone enough to help you.
4) Your best is enough. Sometimes your “best” may be less in one situation over another, but always do as much as you can and let that be enough.
