Let the heart lead
Do the right thing, not the money thing.
Seek to understand where people come from. It earns respect.
Work smart, not hard
Manage energy and prioritize. Sometimes prioritization is choosing what makes you feel alive over rhyme or reason.
Say “fuck it”
Sometimes (a lot of the time), say "fuck it" and just do the thing. You probably won't become homeless and you probably won't die. If you do, at least you went for it.
Goddamnit, you've got to be kind
Relationships are all there is. How do you want to be remembered?
Keep shit simple
Life will make things complicated at some point. For anything you have control over, keep it simple.
When all else fails, make something beautiful. Just about anything can be art with the right intention.
"This is the way things have always been done" is a terrible justification for the way things are. See if there's a better way.
Cynicism is for the weak
You can't always be optimistic, but spend more time recognizing beauty, practicing gratitude, and focusing on what you can control.
Give yourself permission to walk on walls, draw in the sand, and laugh at stupid things.
The world is vast and mysterious. Explore and have deep conversations.
Little things matter
Small everyday actions matter just as much as the big ones.
Sleep your way to the top
Being well-rested is never a waste of time.
