OK I'll play...
Always look at the whole picture in your viewfinder prior to snapping
Never shoot with your lens cap on

Always check that you have your memory card/s with you before you leave home (from experience )
Never be afraid to ask!

Always ask precise and detailed questions on POTN.
Never ask for sweeping generalisations.

Too funny!

Always put the strap around your neck (or hand).

Never stop seeking ways to improve your skills.

Always take your time and think about your composition and how your final product will look (job/situation permitting)

If you're looking to work for pay never forget the fact that business needs supercede photographic wants

Always search for reviews of equipment you are thinking of buying, especially here in the forum.

Never buy anything on credit unless you have a way to pay it off quickly. Debt is not your friend.

Never say "always" because there will always be an exception.

On the other hand, never say "never" because there will always be an exception.

Always take on board any comments people here make about your shots.

Never take these comments as a personal attack.
