The list below is not exhaustive, but I hope you get a better feel of what I like to focus on in my work. I am not perfect, but I work on these things daily and strive to help others with them, too. I often re-read this page to revive my inspiration and refocus on how I interact with others. I hope you find some inspiration too.
