Some advice from a mate's dad

I'll always remember the advice given to me by a friend's dad:

  1. If you don't have a few dollars for your friends, don't bother having any (friends that is).
  2. If you have already made plans with someone, honour that commitment first. Even if means you miss out on a better offer. Otherwise, you are showing the person you have made plans with that they are second preference.
How could you benefit from implementing these two suggestions in your life today?
