Here are Terry's "Five Rules For Life":

1.) Stop caring what people think.
When you don't care if people think you're crazy or not, you can get a lot of interesting things done. I owe any success that I have to this rule.

2.) Don’t take life seriously.
Someone once said not to take life so seriously, because none of us are getting out alive. If this sounds depressing, you are taking life too seriously.

3.) Stop trying to be so damn cool.
Knock it off will you? You'll save money and energy for stuff you actually like doing.

4.) Tell your loved ones that you love them.
Say it out loud, and often. Start today. You won't regret it.

5.) There isn't any excuse for bad manners.

Terry currently resides in Indiana.
