These are reminders to myself, I often do not succeed to meet them, but I wrote these as a reference to try and guide my actions and decisions.
I respect others, I tell people when I think they're wrong and I stand up for people when I believe they are being treated unfairly. I listen to others without judgement or prejudice. I find the human not the label.
I respect myself, I believe in my own value seperate from the value I bring to others. I protect my mental health.
I love and put love into everything I make, and I love and have empathy for the person I make it for.
I respect all life as precious and rare in the universe.
I invest in my own growth and the growth of others. I give credit to others for being instrumental to my growth.
I believe life isn't zero-sum and I can only be free to grow when everyone else is as we are parts of the same system. The most successful life is symbiotic. I support unions.
Life is not zero-sum but it is a closed system and in that system any unconstrained growth is eventual death to the entire system.
I remember that however much I believe I have grown that I have further to go and there is something new I can learn from everyone.
I believe education is the foundation of society. I value diversity and contrasting experience from my own.
🌍 Environmental Responsibility
I leave everything at least no worse than I found it and preferably better. I structure my daily life to minimise my impact on the planet and our environment. I work from home. Where I can, I walk or get the train.
I will not turn down and waste something made for me, but I choose not to eat meat when deciding for myself.
♻️ Efficiency not waste
I avoid waste in all forms; Time, materials, resources, effort, thought. I share what I've learnt so other people can benefit, and I make use of the learnings of other people. I support open source, open education, shared tools and group effort.
I am efficent with what I make and how I make it. Less code, less energy consumption, elegant design. I look at nature and iteration.
Reduce, repair, recycle, reuse.

Be excellent to each other; Party on dudes!
