This is a list of things that make me happy every time I do them, a list of things I return to every time I’m not happy, a list of principles to guide life and work, a personal manifesto.
- Live Many Lives: Live in new cities, learn new languages, always reimagine the world, always reinvent myself.
- Create Positive Change: Do work that creates meaning, write books that open minds, build organizations that change lives.
- Learn, Make, Share: Teach in classrooms, lead in workshops, speak at conferences, create how to guides, mentor talented people.
- Earn, Save, Give: Earn more than I can spend, own as little as possible, invest in crafting a better future, save enough to take a year off.
- Respect My Body: Make the most of the body I have, always eat healthy, practice yoga or meditation daily, take time off regularly to rejuvenate.
- Nurture My Network: Nurture a global network of friends and collaborators, mentors and proteges, and interesting people who inspire me.
