Feb 14: What Rules Do You Live By

As we move forward with Damn Early Days, we're going to be diving deeper into the pieces that make us up.

For little stretches of time, we'll be focused on different topics and areas that contribute to living a life you are aligned with. Sometimes it will be light, sometimes it will be deep, but just know that we'll do our best to keep it "fluff-free" and actionable. No BS here.

Also know that that this isn't about being passive, taking in some content, and going on life just the same. This is about you wanting to do the work that will build your world, give you a stronger foundation for who you are, and help you create the life you want.

Some will be contemplative, some will push your boundaries, some will help you get to know yourself better, and some will be about experimenting.

If you have any feedback, please let us know.

Now let's go.


Last week we asked you to start thinking about the rules you live by and why they matter to you.

It's a question most people never think of, and so our rules (or lack thereof) subconsciously run our lives.

This week, we want to make you aware of yours because used properly, they can help us build a powerful framework for the life WE want to live.

The question you'll be asking yourself is simple:

“Which rules, if I lived by them for the rest of my life, would make me as fulfilled as I can be?”

This morning, we ask that you do two things:

  1. Take some time to write them down on paper. You can write as many as you think you live by (or want to live by). Keep these somewhere you won't lose them.
  2. Write down your top three in the form below. You can do this with your name attached or anonymous. We're going to be compiling a list of all of these and sharing them throughout the community, so we can all see what rules other people use to govern their life, what matters, and where people draw the line in the sand.

So let's hear it...

What Rules Do You Live By?

If you'd rather leave these anonymous, just leave this blank.
Can we share these publicly? *

And some rad tunes to stoke the fire...
