We’re bringing back a favorite item from our archive — British writer and actor Stephen Fry offering life lessons based on his 54 years living in this world. Some of the highlights:
Don’t set goals for yourself, particularly material ones. They’re disastrous and will keep you from becoming who you really are.Keep your ego in check. You’ll be better liked, and more opportunities will come your way.Get outside your comfort zone by traveling to distant lands and reading books in a serendipitous way.Be a giver, not a taker.
