Know what to avoid, and avoid it.
Charlie Munger says, “Don’t do cocaine. Don’t race trains. And avoid all AIDS situations.”
It’s important to know what we must avoid in life. I have been through times when it was easy for me to fall prey to requests from a few of my friends for taking just one puff of cigarette, and just one glass of alcohol.
Thankfully, I knew within my heart what I wanted to avoid. And thankfully, I have avoided those and a few other such things.
So know what to avoid…and avoid it.
