I've been thinking a lot recently about the values that drive people. I've managed to whittle down my own values into five items that make up my personal mission statement.
Blameless postmortems - Review what went wrong and learn from mistakes
Work with facts, not emotion
Be a creator, not just a consumer
Focus on what I've done, not what I will do
Sleep enough. Exercise daily. Everything else can wait
How do you try and live your life?
