Having a set of values provides a compass for making tough decisions.
I recognize that in order to become the best I can possibly be, I have to make sacrifices. I have to leave my comfort zone and accept challenges. Doing the right things can be uncomfortable, hard or painful. I will not allow these inconveniences to stop me.
Life is short, and I want to consciously experience any waking moment. I use meditation to train my mind to be focused, aware and present.
Efficiency & Impact
Make the biggest possible impact with the resources at my disposal. No waste. Focus on doing things that matter most. I keep a private Github Repo where I plan quarterly and long term objectives as well as ongoing weeks.
I won't take for granted what someone tells me I can do or cannot do. I am always on the lookout for ways to shape reality according to my own ideas. I take ownership over my life and refrain from outsourcing decisions.
