Personal values

I was inspired by Kenneth Reitz’s list of personal values to produce one of my own. This list will continue to evolve as I learn new lessons.

  1. Focus, obsess, inspire.
  2. Laziness is a virtue.
  3. Time is your only currency; allocate it sparingly.
  4. Perfection is unattainable, but worth pursuing.
  5. Aim to fail often and learn from it; success is overrated.
  6. Intuition, logic and passion are a powerful combo.
  7. Calculated risks are less risky than taking no risks at all.
  8. Ask forgiveness, not permission.
  9. Collaboration beats competition.
  10. Never stop learning.
  11. The best way to learn is to teach.
  12. Ask for opinions, but feel free to disregard them.
  13. Forgive others for your own inner peace.
  14. Have faith in people.
  15. Put family, friends and love first.
  16. Never compromise on your honesty, integrity and loyalty.
  17. Be authentic: the same in your house as you are on the public streets.
  18. Be gentle with yourself.
