My core values

I’d love for you to know where I stand. Here are some of my core values in no particular order.

  1. Don’t talk about it, be about it – a man’s word is his bond.
  2. Simplify – when possible reduce your focus to 3 or 10 items.
  3. Learn It, Document it – share what you have learned with others.

Life List

I strongly believe everyone should have a life list. You only get one life…you might as well have some big dreams.
