1. Everything that matters is in the relationships.

Everything gets done only through relationships, everywhere. Your life’s quality will be defined by the quality of your relationships, professional and personal. The only thing that can never get over-invested in is relationships.

2. Your reputation is all you have.

Protect it at all costs. Never run risk of trading this off for anything. Adhere to principles and deeds you committed to, and that in itself will be the accomplishment.

3. There is only one true way of doing anything.

Sports, business, arts and religion. Hardwork, competition, teamplay and never being satisfied. Immersing yourself in the process is the true Way, just as polishing the tile itself is the true Buddha.
