I often run long distance as part of my workouts and lately I've been composing various axioms for how I should live. These are three axioms I find integral to my character which I try and place at the bedrock of my decision making.
0th - The thought which you cannot think is that which guides you.
1st - The world can be boiled down to two types of people: those who act and those who are acted upon. Be one who acts.
2nd - Defy social conformities via normative methods.
