Listen. Consider the words of other people. What quotations do you replay in your mind? What offhand comments have you found unforgettable?
Fight the urge to be too comprehensive. To make commandments memorable, keep the snappy—just a short phrase.
Know that each person’s list will differ. For one person, “Say yes” might be at the top of the list. For someone else, “Say yes” might be a terrible addition to his commandments, because he tends to over commit. Think about yourself, your values, your strengths and weaknesses, and your interests.
