Life Advice on Post-It Notes

by johannespunkt

A while back I asked my Twitter friends and strangers to ask me for life advice, because I felt the urge to write life advice on post-it notes. This very quickly became very difficult, as I squeezed all my wisdom out pretty quickly and had to generate more by having offworld adventures and learning deep lessons in deeper space, but eventually I pulled through, and everybody who asked for a post-it in a certain time period, and also everyone whom I mistook for having asked for a post-it, was given one. I thought I’d share them here too.

Some of these are for people I don’t really know, and as such I’ve simply given them advice I would give myself. Some of them are for people I know very well and, as such, I’ve given them advice I wouldn’t dream of giving a stranger. If something here feels like bizarro evil-twin shenanigans to you, that piece of advice is probably not for you. And that’s okay.

Bonus life advice from Piet Hein, who wrote little aphorisms he called grooks. He helped keep Denmark fighting against the nazis during their occupation. He's worth reading/reading about.
