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