Principles to Live By

"Principles to live by" sounds, I dunno, really pretentious, like something your favorite tech-dude-cum-philosopher might say. I guess it's something of an aspirational title. A sort of "wouldn't it be great if I lived by these" sort of thing.


Maybe organizing these in this list on a dedicated page on my website lends the necessary "gravitas" for my brain to take these principles seriously. Mostly this is a list of important ideas I'd like to remember over time, to check in on and bring myself back to. A periodic reminder, something of a more stoic digital cat poster.
