PRINCIPLES 018

PRINCIPLES 018 started as a culture doc”1 on my website. Those principles turned into this booklet. The significance of 018 is that these are my principles as of 18 years on earth. The booklet shares the most influential ideas in my life, with lessons from Bill Belichick, Patrice O’Neal, and Vassily Ivanchuk, to name a few.

  1. Though culture docs have been done by many people and many companies, the one that particularly impacted me was Scribe’s Culture Bible (previously Book in a Box) by Tucker Max.
