From the author of

Name:

David Airey

Job Experience:

Self-employed as a graphic designer and writer for seven years

Most Notable Achievement:

Attracting more than 200,000 subscribers to my design blogs and getting my first book translated into eight languages

Advice:

Let's say our lives span a maximum of a hundred years. If fifty years are taken up with sleep, ten years in childhood, and twenty years lost in old age, that leaves twenty years to create something meaningful. Don't eliminate that time with sorrow, complaints, or unnecessary negativity: we create our best work when we're in a positive frame of mind. We have no idea if, after death, we'll ever experience again, so most importantly, enjoy, appreciate, love.
