Twitter employee Buster Benson is obsessed with the quantified self. But what caught my attention were his rules to live by. There are 17 of them, and they are awesome:

  1. You must not dilly-dally.
  2. You must be your word.
  3. You must have good intentions.
  4. You must admit to being the maker of meaning.
  5. You must not feel sorry for yourself.
  6. You must have a vision that you are striving for.
  7. You must tie creativity and experimentation with survival.
  8. You must be the change you want to see.
  9. You must rally others with your vision.
  10. You must stake your reputation on your better self.
  11. You must be comfortable with the consequences of being who you are.
  12. You must share.
  13. You must make your own advice and take it.
  14. You must manage your stress, health, and clarity.
  15. You must study your mistakes.
  16. You must retry things you don’t like every once in a while.
  17. You must make time to enjoy things.

    “You must stake your reputation on your better self.”

    I would like to see this expanded on.
