      Excellence = being very good at something and accept that mistekes happen. Prefection = being stupid enough tio think that mistakes are for others.

    Great list, although I do prefer remembering things instead of writing them down. Why? Because in my belief, it keeps the mind going and the more you write down, the more you don’t rely on your own intelligence and it will suffer!

    Other than that, all good tips.
