      Lots of wisdom and solid practical advice here. This one bit struck me as odd though:

      Listen to me: Being good is a terrible handicap to making good work. Stop it right now. Just pick a few secondary categories, like good friend, or good at karaoke. Be careful, however of categories that take into account the wants and needs of other humans.

      Seems like it would be tough to be a good friend without taking into account the wants and needs of other humans. Implying that you can have it all seems to discount the sacrifice required if you really follow the advice.
