Tonyso Credo: "Look for a pattern, and solve it for everything"

I found it useful recently in talking with some business colleagues, and most especially with my teenage children, to articulate the principles I value. Writing things down helps me live by them, and helps me express them in a way that is easy for others to remember. Discussion welcomed.

Here are my principles:

1. Show up. On time.

2. Pay attention.

3. Tell the truth.

4. Do your best.

Do these things well, most other issues and problems go away, or get a lot easier to solve. Don't do these things, you and I will not communicate and work well together.

My motto since joining Microsoft (tag line of this blog) is the method whereby I try to do number 4.

  • From my forensics speech teacher:

    Be short.
    Be sincere.
    Sit down.

  • With my kids I have another one:

    Own up to your mistakes. Everyone makes them. Admit it. Learn from it.
