Since becoming a regular character on Parks and Recreation, Retta’s Donna Meagle has been the superstar of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department. She has a busy sex and dating life, she drives a sweet Benz, her cousin is Ginuwine, and she is just generally perfect. And while everyone on the show can get it, no one knows how to live like Donna. She has done us the service of teaching us, on occasion, her secrets to success. Here are the 10 biggest.

1. You don’t need to be warm and fuzzy when you have something people want.
