Gene Autry's Ten Cowboy Commandments
Gene Autry died in 1998 at the age of 91. For many years one of Hollywood's most significant "western" stars, Autry, went beyond his entertainment popularity to achieve great business success. Perhaps some cause and effect can be established by recalling his "Ten Cowboy Commandments." These commandments were distributed to Gene Autry's Radio Rangers, circa 1930, and also published in Seth Godin's compilation The Official Rules of Life.
Ten Cowboy Commandments:
1. Do not take unfair advantage of an enemy.
2. Be a patriot.
3. Be gentle with children, elders, and animals.
4. Do not possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.
5. Don't drink or smoke.
6. Help people in distress.
7. Respect your elders, your parents, and your nation's laws.
8. Be a good worker.
9. Always tell the truth.
10. Never go back on your word.
