What I Live By
My Blueprint

I'm always trying to improve.

It's not that I have uncanny self-discipline.
It's just doing what I love.

I like turning learning into action.

Learn-do-learn. Learn a bit. Then do shit. Then learn in the process.

All rules are made up.
I think for myself.

I hate social defaults. I like 'stupid' questions. I try to work out better ways to do things.

I keep a list of irrational beliefs and contrarian predictions including that cyborgs are closer than we think and non-mimetic speaking styles correlate with founder success.

I value radical honesty and direct feedback.

I get dopamine from critical feedback. I've only once received feedback I thought was sufficiently harsh.

I'm energised by helping, teaching, and sharing.

I want empowering others to be a routine part of how I engage with the world.
