1. You live life 24 hours at a time, maximum.
A schedule, what’s that? Uncertainty becomes your best friend and flexibility is your mode of operation. Not always a bad thing, but you might lose your ability to make long term plans. Even when you attempt to plan, you know in the back of your mind that irrationality will overpower reason when presented with an awesome alternative like an invitation to crew on a trans-Atlantic yacht. Your future is always in flux, so forget a five year plan, its a stretch to think about where you will be in the next five days.
