Willie Nelson’s 10 Rules for Life

We’ve picked up a lot of life lessons from Country songs over the years; ‘Live Like you were Dying‘, ‘It Won’t be like this for Long‘, or even ‘God is Great, Beer is Good, People are Crazy‘. But how about some straight-talking advice based on Willie Nelson’s outlook? We love this artwork of Willie’s manifesto by artist Raissa Pardini (created for WeTransfer in honour of Willie’s 88th birthday).

Willie’s manifesto for life reads:

  1. Stop looking for happiness…
  2. Don’t blame others…
  3. Don’t let your thoughts think you…
  4. Stay out of trees…
  5. You can’t make a turd without grease…
  6. There’s no such thing as normal…
  7. Know what you value…
  8. Don’t be an asshole…
  9. You know what’s right…
  10. Set yourself free.

What’s your go to life rule?
