Good advices

The young man of Baghdad solicits advice from a friend as his slave girl, who is adept at music, awaits, from a Tuti-nama (Tales of a Parrot): Forty-eighth Night
The Problem with Newsletter Advice — CJ Chilvers:

The good advice for business (and life) is boring and readily available.

  • Deliver value.
  • Save money automatically.
  • Diversify.
  • Strive for more agency in work and life.
  • Be kind.
  • Be generous.
  • Put family first.
  • Without your health, nothing else can happen.
  • And so on…

CJ talks about newsletters, but does a nice abstraction about the key elements of doing a successful one. Newsletters have been around for centuries.

Nothing has changed but the means of delivery. [edit mine]

Also true for life.
