Stanley Kubrick’s 12 “Basic Training” Rules

The documentary S Is for Stanley says Kubrick had these rules posted in every room of his house and that they exemplify his preoccupation with discipline and orderliness. I’m not sure I believe they were posted in every room, but surely the latter is true. Kubrick, one should note, had three daughters and worked from home.

Part of me wonders if these originate with him. They seem like something that would be posted on a WWII Navy ship. Anyone know of an earlier source?

Cf. Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules for life.
