Credo

Mijn Credo.
De volgende 15 regels heb ik gedestilleerd uit een langere lijst, die ooit gepost is op de Extropians-mailinglist.

  • By adhering to a strong honest philosophy, you will remain guiltless, blameless, independent and maintain control over your life. Without a sound philosophy, your life will eventually crumble.
  • Fill your life with positive expectations. Demand the best. Attitude and desire contribute to 90% of your success. Anyone can learn the physical mechanics.
  • Keep an active mind, and continue to grow intellectually. You either grow or regress. Nothing stands still.
  • High self-esteem can only come from moral productivity and achievement. The source of lasting happiness can never come from outside yourself through consuming values – but only from within yourself by producing values.
  • If your purpose of life is security, you will be a failure. Security is the lowest form of happiness.
  • Life operates in reverse action to entropy. Therefore the universe is hostile to life. Progress is a continued effort to swim against the stream.
  • Constantly strive to increase order and discipline in your life. Discipline usually means doing the opposite of what you feel like doing. Life is easy if you play it the hard way and hard if you try to play it the easy way.
  • Cherish time, your most valuable resource. You can never make up the time you lose. It’s the most important value for any productive happy individual and is the only limitation to all accomplishment. To waste time is to waste your life.
  • Be explicit and semantically precise in all communications, agreements and dealings. Summarize and write down important discussions… and make sure all sides agree. Putting agreements in writing avoids misunderstandings.
  • Cut all ties with dishonest, negative or lazy people.
  • Religiously nourish your body with proper nutrition, exercise and rest.
  • Take full control of, and responsibility for, your conscious mind and all aspects of your life. Do not depend on others. Being incompetent or dependent in any part of your life or business opens you up to manipulation and irrationality.
  • The purpose of life is to delay, avoid and eventually reverse death.
  • There is no such thing as a good idea unless it is utilized.
  • The best way to get started is to get started. Do it now… and work every project to its conclusion with single-minded concentration.
