Insights from Johnny Carson

  1. Learn to laugh at yourself
  2. Never lose the curiousity of childhood: "Go on asking questions about the nature of things and how they work, and don't stop until you get the answers."
  3. Study the art of compromise, which implies willingness to be convinced by other people's arguments: "Stay loose. In Marriage, above all, compromise is the name of the game."
  4. Having picked a profession, feel no compulsion to stick to it: "If you don't like it, stop doing it. Never continue in a job you don't enjoy."
