After discovering the power of naming behaviors, I settled on my own list of them. These are the guidelines I’ve picked up over the past year that have had a tangible effect on my day to day decisions.
Here they are, the rules I live by boiled down into a tidy little list:
- Avoid avoiding (aka, courage over comfort)
- Run the experiment.
- Clear is kind, unclear is unkind.
- Make mistakes of ambition, and not mistakes of sloth.
- Action over discussion.
- Stop trying to be impressive. Start trying to be warm.
- HELL YEAH or no.
- It’s just soccer.
If you’re in the mood, my friend and I dug into a few of these on our new podcast.
