We all operate with a set of core principles and commitments. Some of us are aware of what they are, others haven’t defined them yet.
Whether they’re written down and “defined” or not, they still exist. They just might be in the dark.
A bright light can help.
Shining light in a certain area exposes what’s hidden. Most of us have something that’s in the dark: deep in our heads and hearts. And some people can walk around and be OK with all of that in the dark. Others go crazy.
The goal is to figure out first what kind of person you are and how you best operate. Then figure out the people around you and how they best operate.
If you need your core principles visible, keep them visible. If you don’t, then don’t worry about it.
