The 5 Mad Principles
Before I got hired at People’s Liberty actually, before I even got an interview, I read about The 5 Mad Principles here on SOMP. I thought to myself “These are 5 simple but powerful principles that I want embrace in my life.” — with or without People’s Liberty.
Risk Freely — Sometimes I have big ideas and/or little ones, and there's a little voice in my head that says “Shh, don't dare say it out loud.” Nevertheless I say it out loud.
Try Again — I make mistakes, you make mistakes, we all make mistakes. I’m learning that. Now, let’s move on.
Share Openly — There will always be an opportunity to learn something new, or to teach something new to someone. I always try to remember this principle especially.
See Differently — To me this means ask questions and to be open minded. Simple. Doable. Worth it.
Care — Because it makes a huge difference!
All we need are these 5 mad principles to be great-er. I'll try to never forget that.
