Seven-Word Wisdom: The Contest

How much advice can you distill down to seven words?

“As it turns out, seven words is a surprisingly catchy way to deliver a message. Just ask writer Michael Pollan, whose book “In Defense of Food” is debuting at no. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list this weekend. (Read the recent interview with him here .) The popularity of the book is due in no small part to Mr. Pollan’s catchy seven-word edict:

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Let’s have a contest. What wisdom can you dispense in seven words and in the 2-3-2 format?

The author of the NY Times health blog suggests these contest rules, which we will use as well:

“Submit your own 2-3-2 word sequences sharing advice for the rest of us. Submit as many entries as you want. Here are the rules:

Dispense wisdom. Don’t be gross. No profanity.”

What advice can you distill down to just seven words – using the 2-3-2 format?

We’ll run this for the next three days and see what we get. Oh – no links in your entry to sell anything, please.

Prize to be announced. Best: instant recognition for the winner.

P.S. Your dispensed wisdom can be on any topic you feel strongly about.
