Resident megalomaniac
Greetings fellow earthlings!

I hope you are enjoying your time here on the forum today.

Top marks for all of them, with one disagreement, and it's not with the general rule (#2), just this part.

In the end, there is only one way to measure your life. And that is this: are you doing your best? At the end of each day, look back and ask, “Did I give my all today? Did I do everything I could to accomplish my goals, and to be the kind of person I want to be?”

If the answer is yes, then congratulations! You win. No one can ask any more, or do any better than that.

Am I doing my best? Did I give my all today? Give me a break. If you judge yourself by this kind of standard you have just substituted one taskmaster (other people) for another (yourself). You're never going to live up to that standard. Ooooh I don't think I gave my all today! Nearly all, but not all! I'm so bad!
