My curiosity to read this book was finally administered last night when I decided to read ‘The Rules of Life’ by British Author Richard Templar.
It is divided into the following parts:
(1) Rules for You,
(2) Partnership Rules,
(3) Family and Friends Rules,
(4) Social Rules,
(5) World Rules.
This book isn’t a revelation, it’s a reminder.
It reminds you that the Rules of Life are universal, obvious, simple. Do them, they work”.
As the author best explains: “What you will find is good old-f ...more
I have two main gripes about the book.
1) There are 105 Rules, and they're all over the place. I didn't get much of a sense of connection between these rules, many were similar to others, and just weren't very concise. The book does not really take you anywhere.
2) The tone of the book feels as if the author is speaking down to the re ...more
Mr. Templar really articulates a realistic guidance to live a quite, fulfilled, and somehow a happy life. It is a perfect book for young people or who are seeking towards success and achieving their dreams. One of the most significant things within the book, being long paragraphed articles! Every subject has only a page and half. Additionally, it is a good book for wise methods to overcome the downs of life.
Enjoy it! Enjoy your life
First of all I have to admit that I like the way that Mr Templer presents his thoughts in , it's easy , clear , deep and realistic which gives you a good life style .
This book should leave a great impact on your life , as will as it did to me . There are too many things that's iam really going to change in my own life style ,
There's some of the quotes that I like :
- What is done is done and you need to just get on with your life.
- Change what you can change and let go of the rest.
- Do the r ...more
I have no idea why I tend to buy self-help books (or management books, another genre this applies to) in airports, apart from the broadening of standards that tends to apply when facing an eight-hour transatlantic flight, but I do; so it goes. This one, however, I didn't read on the flight - I think I bought quite a few books that time - so here I am coming to it much later.
Unfortunately, while I have found some good and interesting reads in this genre, I c ...more

The book has a light-read feel to it; readers who pick up the book should be able to finish it within two to three days. The writing is easy to comprehend but I am slightly annoyed at the frequen ...more
I think someone else would actually like it.
I liked these rules though:
Take an Interest in the Outside World
Only Dead Fish Swim with the Stream
Be Your Own Adviser
No Fear, No Surprise, No Hesitation, No Doubt
I Wish I’d Done That—and I Will (THE WORLD IS DIVIDED INTO THOSE WHO LOOK AT OTHERS ENVIOUSLY AND THOSE WHO LOOK AT OTHERS AS A MOTIVATIONAL TOOL.)
Don’t Dwell on the Past
Life Can Be a Bit Like Advertising (YOU’LL NEVER KNOW FROM WHICH BITS OF EFFORT COME THE BEST REWARD.)
You’ll Never Understand Everything ...more

خصّص لنفسك مساحة قليلة من الوقت كل يوم
يظن معظم الناس
أنهم يحققون ذلك بالفعل،
فهم حتى في الوقت الذي يقضونه وحدهم قلقون بشأن الغير ..
ويفكّرون في الأهل أو الأصدقاء أو الأحباء!
وأنت بذلك لا تمنح نفسك في واقع الأمر أي لحظة خالصة
خصص لنفسك بعض الوقت على أساس يومي ..
10 دقائق فقط، كرّسها لنفسك تمامًا
فأنت القائد لحياتك
وأنت الطاقة الدافعة
إن لم تحصل على هذا الوقت
فهذا يعني أنك لا تحصل على طاقة جديدة،
ومحركك سوف يتعطل، وتتهاوى أنت بالتالي
• ما الذي أفعله في هذا الوقت ؟
لا شيء بالمرة.. وأعني هذا تمامًا !!
إنه وقت التقاط الأنفاس
وقت الجلوس في صمت
دون عمل أي شيء
لا تقلق .. لا تفكر .. اجلس وحسب
وقدّر نعمة كوْنك على قيد الحياة
