What matters most to me
Decades ago a yogi told me, "There will come a day when you won't have the luxury to consider the options and choose; a moment when the only asset you have is the muscle memory formed from years of practice. Everything will depend on the jump you instinctively make." The single most important thing for me is to practice doing the right thing. I try to practice my values in small private interactions as well as in public ways, and to be compassionate with myself and try again when I fall short.
