One thing I'm always looking for is new frameworks of thought; ways to optimise and improve how I work and feel. I'll listen to people's experiences and methods they use and read arguments that encourage the move I'm trying to make. For example, a good one I heard the other day about how to maintain an abundance of energy and enthusiasm came from everyone's favourite bodybuilder Terry Crews, where he related his joy for living to the gratitude he practised for the things he was lucky to have achieved. It's little things like that I like to have in the barrel for when the inner voice is working against me.
That's why I decided a good blog topic would be sharing my philosophies of work. For each one of these I'll explain my method and what it'll do to help if you're creating a project of your own.
So without further ado, let's get into my Three Tenets.
What's the philosophy?
The Three Tenets will be your personal common denominator that defines the motivations behind everything you do. With them, you can figure out if a project your planning aligns with your audience goals, and filter out things that you might be doing for the wrong reasons.

For example, my list looked like this...
