PLAYLIST FOR “DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO” RULES TO LIVE BY IN 2014 (1.4.14)

4 Jan

Most shows and hosts try give good advice, especially at this time of year. The best shows and hosts even try to model the behavior and rules they suggest. I do things differently and I think it’s a better system, one that’s much easier on me and, probably, just as effective (if not more) for you. Here are the songs that best illustrate things I won’t be doing in the new year, but you should.
