Rules to Live By – via Scott Berkun via Buster Benson

Unabashedly stolen from Scott, who pilfered from Buster.  Definitely a great set of rules to live by.  Some of the rules seem pretty basic and ‘Der’ inducing, but it never hurts to be reminded of the basics and the fundamentals.  All these are pretty all inclusive and can apply pretty much regardless of the situation.

Check out Scott’s post here, and Buster Benson’s website here.  Some of Buster’s projects include Locavore, 750words, and Health Month.  In short, Buster is bloody brilliant and pretty damn inspirational.  He’s been added my gReader for sure.
