List- an excerpt from Boxes and Arrows

I am curious about lists. I make them and when necessary, I break the rules of a list. I will just start another one! I like seeing other people's lists, it is kind of like making a little discovery. If you've got a list that works for you- do share! I've highlighted my favs on this list. Here's one from an IT designer:
mantra box—in 2005:
Simplify
He who owns little is little owned
Smaller, smaller
Do only what you love, love everything that you do
Collaborate
Underpromise, overdeliver
Embrace constraints
Less
Business is personal—not an abstraction
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Context
Honor your mistake as a hidden intention
Disrupt business as usual
Convert talent into code
Anchor
Yes or no?
Eat like a bird, sh*t like an elephant
Axis thinking
Tenacity
Style—happiness—emotional appeal
Disorganize (for renewal and innovation)
Storytelling
As simple as possible, but not simpler
Nobody knows what they really want before they get it
-Jorge Arango
