I am beginner. I am grateful to have good beginnning so far. Just be glad to be here.

I am beginner. I am grateful to have bad beginnings so far. Don’t take myself too seriously.

I am human and make errors. Be systematic and rigorous to protect myself from making errors, but be honest about them. Have Japanese attention to detail.

Focus on correctness and throughput. Don’t give in to the rush.

Enhance positive expectations and bound negative consequences. Be antifragile.

Allways strive to do the best. No right for excuses.

I used to repeat this in my mind every day during my morning meditation. I’m not sure why I stopped. Those were great days.

Even this morning, remembering it and repeating it has made me calmer, happier and more focused.
