For as long as I can remember, I've always been on the lookout for wisdom.

The funny thing about wisdom is that it comes in many different forms, it can be gleaned from all kinds of situations and you'll hear it in all kinds of places.

One unexpected place where I've found MANY such examples of this is from LifeProTips on Reddit. There is some CRAZY good advice here!

After several months of collecting the best nuggets of wisdom I could find, I decided to compile 30 of them here on the blog, because I think they're all worth taking to heart.
