My guiding principles:
- Kaizen (Continuous improvement): I may not be good at something, but if I set a goal to achieve in that area, stay focused, work to improve 1% a day, and then over a year’s/lifetime that 1% will be compounded. Malcolm Gladwell in his book, Outliers, mentioned that it takes 10,000 hours to become a master a something. Sub-values that fall under this topic are:
- Goal setting
- Daily practice/study
- Stay Together (Loyalty/Family): I strongly believe in the family sticking together, loving, supporting and encouraging each other.
- Positive Attitude: I tell my kids constantly that they must control their attitude. As Victor Frankl mentions, you can’t control outside circumstances, but you can control your response/attitude to them.
More to come later.
