Lots has been written and said about the importance of values and how they can be the guiding force for the things you do, and don’t do.
In no particular order my work values are:
Inventiveness – because ‘we always do it this way’ is rarely the right answer
Curiosity – because we need to understand as well as to know
Enjoyment – because life is too short to be miserable at work
Fairness – because we will all be the little guy some day
Improvement – because there’s always room for better
