Live in the active voice, rather than passive.
Think more about what will happen than what is happening to you.
Live in the indicative mood, rather than in the subjective.
Be concerned with things as they are, rather than as they might be
Live in the present tense, facing the duty at hand
without regret for the past or worry over the future.
Live in the singular number, caring more for the approval of your own conscience
than for the applause of the crowd.
