85. Forget about the Joneses. Conspicuous consumption benefits nobody but the companies selling the goods. We’d be happier, more relaxed, and more satisfied if we disengaged from it entirely.

86. March to your own drummer. Don’t feel obligated to follow the crowd, or live according to others’ expectations.

87. Think before you act. We can often save ourselves a lot of trouble if we think about the consequences before acting on impulse.
