My guidelines for navigating life
I have been designing, creating, and collaborating for more than half of my life. Over the years, I've taken time to learn lessons and determine what I find personally significant. As time has gone by, I have often found myself reflecting on these things that have become my core values.
I do my best to keep these key principles of my personal philosophy present alongside all of my thoughts and actions. Even when things get messy, difficult, or frightening, I take a step back and remember these ideas and the things that drive me. This ongoing process of reflection and objectivity helps me rise above the issues, get my head out of the weeds, and gain a higher perspective.
Be Intentionally Pragmatic
Separate ego from work, and approach every problem sensibly
The Currency of Respect
Easy to earn, easy to lose; respect has a very high value
Find Value In All Feedback
Understanding feedback is crucial, so be sure to listen for what people are saying
Fully Embrace The Golden Rule
Live with empathy, make the decisions you'd want others to make
Don't blame your problems on others, your life is up to you
