The Art of Doing the Right Thing

If you’ve known me for a while, you’re likely familiar with a few core ideas that I use to orient my work and life—like the 4 Principles of Productivity I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. But while each of these ideas is important and impactful, if I had to zero in on a one-line mantra, it’d be: do the right thing.

Clean Your Garage, Desk and Car, Then We’ll Talk
