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. Follow the golden rule – Be kind. Treat others as you would want to be treated.
  2. Insightful curiosity – Be relentless with your desire to learn something new. Test ideas, ask tough questions, challenge what you know. Be a lifelong learner.
  3. Don’t talk about it, be about it – if you say you are going to do something…do it. If you fail, own it and learn from it.
  4. Stress Less – prioritize what is important and delegate the rest.
  5. 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. Check out my life list items.
