12 Rules For Life

“12 Rules For Life” by Jordan B. Peterson was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I was luckily able to attend Peterson’s 12 rules for life book tour and got to briefly meet him!

Rule 1

Stand up straight with your shoulders back.

Rule 2

Treat yourself like you would someone you are responsible for helping.

Rule 3

Make friends with people who want the best for you.

Rule 4

Compare yourself with who you were yesterday, not with who someone else is today.

Rule 5

Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them.

Rule 6

Set your house in perfect order before you criticise the world.

Rule 7
