12 Ways to Live in Mediocrity

1. Worry about what others think of you 2. Refuse to do more than what's expected

3. Make excuses

4. Accept "that's just the way it is"

5. Don't do anything that rocks the boat

6. Don't ask questions, or make suggestions

7. Do what you're told without thinking

8. Complain about your life and do nothing to change it

9. Be complacent and careless

10. Constantly try to please everyone

11. Don't bother thinking about tough subjects or learning new ideas

12. Keep having the same arguments over and over again without solving the problem

With these thought processes (or lack thereof) you'll be well on your way to a life of misery. Oops did I say misery? I meant mediocrity ;)
