HOW TO FAIL IN EVERYTHING
Knock everything systematically. No matter what you hear of, deprecate it and predict the worst.
Mind everyone else’s business. This will insure you neglecting your own.
Never perform today what you can possibly postpone unto tomorrow.
Leave the important things to someone else instead of seeing to them personally.
Have no organized arrangements. Trust to luck for everything.
Be a sanctimonious humbug, and when you bungle things say it is “the Lord’s will” or that the trouble is that you are too good for your surroundings.
Sit down and wait for something to turn up.
Finally, conduct your life in all respects as if there were not God.
Deliver me from all my transgression: make me not the reproach of the foolish (Psalm 39:8).
