My favorite magazine, The Week, published an exerpt from a new book entitled, 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice From the Wisest Americans.  Author Karl Pillemer interviewed aged people and came up with his list.  The Week reported this list:

  1. Marry someone you like
  2. Honor your vows
  3. Share your kids' lives
  4. Learn from bad experiences
  5. Choose happiness
  6. Stay connected
  7. Accept life as it is
  8. Don't be afraid of dying

And I would add these two:

  1. Do something worth doing, I. e. something not specifically beneficial to you
  2. Take more risks
