Mine is simple and easy to understand. I didn’t come up with it, (I ain’t that smart). I got it from the ole boy who broke me in on reloading......the same guy who would send my down to the liquor store to get him beer to only tell me the “next lesson” in reloading would continue tomorrow. Yep, I got played numerous times, but the old fart knew his $hit

So it comes down to.....”I ain’t here for a long time.....I’m here for a good time“. It’s served me well for 30 plus years now. Zero stress.

Whatca you got?

That's funny. It reminds me of when I was a little kid in the '70s. My relatives would come over to grill and drink and smoke cigarettes. When they ran low they would give me money and send me to the store. I would pedal my bike down to the little liquor store and I would buy beer and cigarettes. I was only 10 but the clerk didn't think twice about it. The return trip could be tough and slow going, but I got 'er done!

"To get ahead you've got to give a little." Just kidding!

"There are no problems, only solutions." I made that up in 2005.

Thinking about it I have many that change with circumstances ( like "don't get mad get even" or "no one ever went broke taking a profit" of "life is short") but I think there is one overriding one that stayed with me from Boy Scouts "Be Prepared".

So you are the original composer of that, I always wondered ...
I was in Afghanistan doing some armed escort work, and me and one of my partners were teaching our charges how to bail out of a disabled vehicle and get to cover. They were getting a little exasperated and flustered with all the "what-if" questions we were giving them, and finally I said, "Hey! There are no problems, only solutions!" Everybody stopped and looked at me and said "Wow!"

If anybody said it before me, I never heard it. I also started "Ask me how I know!" in 2009 down in the Kandahar region of AF.
