Simplicity

Remove the unnecessary.

Presence

Be present.

Space

Take up space.

Optimism

Perceive only opportunity. The glass is both half full and too small.

Creation

Create only that which enriches or improves the experience of others. This is the essence of value.

Perfection

Perfection is a goal, not a destination. Create something today. Improve it tomorrow.
