Chris Guillebeau at The Art of Non-Conformity has a great new post up entitled A short collection of unconventional ideas.

A year after you leave college, no one will care what your GPA was.

Once you fully understand what you want, it’s not usually that difficult to get it.

At all stages of life, people will gladly offer you unsolicited lists of things you “must” do, be, or have. Most of the time you can nod your head, walk away, and ignore them.

You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect you to.

Potential is good when you’re 15 years old. After that, you need to start doing something.

Highly recommended. Read the whole thing here. I'd definitely recommend the rest of Chris's site as well: as well as trying to visit every country in the world, he also found the time to write his manifesto called A Brief Guide to World Domination, which is brilliant.
