Courtesy of Jack Dorsey (chairman of Twitter and CEO of Square):

  1. Don’t be a jerk
  2. Don’t take anyone for granted
  3. Enjoy the moment
  4. Be honest, always
  5. Be humble
  6. Be kind
  7. Respect people’s wishes
  8. Allow endings
  9. Fail openly
  10. Have an amazing haircut

I can’t speak to #10 as much (although a good haircut does make you feel better!), but the rest have been crucial to me this year.

I will add one more to the list: be forgiving. (Forgive yourself and those you love.)

Do you have any guidelines you live by?


I am a patient boy.
