Unified theory of extraordinary living

Here is the first draft of the 11 Commandments of Buster McLeod.
  1. You must have good intentions.
  2. You must admit to being the maker of meaning.
  3. You must not feel sorry for yourself.
  4. You must have a vision that you are striving for.
  5. You must tie creativity and experimentation with survival.
  6. You must be the change.
  7. You must rally others with your vision.
  8. You must not dilly-dally.
  9. You must stake your reputation on your better self.
  10. You must be responsible for your own failure and success.
  11. You must be comfortable with big failure.
I want to explain each of these ideas in more detail, but I'm still working on the exact list.  Some might be combined.  And some of them probably don't make sense yet  without further explanation.  But I think this sums up the lessons I've learned from self-help, meditation, Landmark, half-marathons, entrepreneurship, and McLeod in the year or so.  Am I full of shit?  Say so.  And what am I missing?
