When an opportunity comes along, take it.
When an interesting person comes along, have a conversation.
When something goes wrong, learn from it.
When you have a question, find the answer.
When things are going well, celebrate.
When things are going badly, celebrate.
When you discover a solution, share it with the world.
When things are not as they should be, change them.
Write about these things.
