Understand my values

Do these values resonate with you?

Personal growth. In my view, happiness comes from striving towards being better and living more consciously.

Fun. This is it: your one life. You are not in a dress rehearsal for some future life. So have fun while you’re here!

Autonomy. You—not your boss, not your clients—should be in charge of how you spend your time.

Competence. Being good at things gives you a sense of purpose and makes you feel proud of yourself.

Authenticity. Being real feels good. And life is a lot less stressful when you aren’t trying to fake it until you “make it”.

Taking care of the planet. We only have one planet and we’re not treating it right. We can do better. (This is why I’m vegan.)

Animal rights. We share the planet with lots of animals who feel things, who are key parts of ecosystems we rely on, and who are simply beautiful to observe. Let’s leave them be. (This is why I’m vegan.)

Fairness. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to pursue happiness.
