The June 2009 edition of the Mensa Bulletin included a feature called “Trust Me”, a collection of advice. Bernard Kitt, PhD, a psychotherapist wrote:
There are three only three things to remember:
1. I will be happy.
2. I will make some money.
3. I will make other people happy.
One hundred percent of the people I saw agreed with the three, but not one of them had the order right! Get them out of order and it will fail, ultimately.
