Jack Bogle's Rules for a Good Life

I read a really inspiring article about successful Vanguard founder and all-around good guy, Jack Bogle, in the Philadelphia Inquirer the other day. It listed his rules for a good life.

Jack Bogle's Rules For a Good Life

Rule No. 1: Get out of bed in the morning. If you don't do that, not very much is going to happen. Once you get out of bed, try to have a good day. Try to be a better parent. Try to be a better husband. Try to be a better colleague. Try to help those around you. Try to teach people. Try to learn. Try to do something completely off the wall. Be conscious of the world around you, and try to make it a tiny bit better today. If you do that, when you go to bed you'll get a good night's sleep.

Rule No. 2: Repeat Rule No. 1 the next day.

Definitely the key to a good and fulfilling life. If you want to read the whole article, you can find it here

He's a really refreshing guy. Drives a seven-year old car, doesn't live a flashy lifestyle, and believes in making the world a better and nicer place. Yay!
