Reviewing the Upstarta Principles

After three successful years, it’s time to take a peek at the Upstarta Principles and see if any changes can be made that would improve them further. They’ve worked really well, but perhaps we can make a sentence clearer with fewer words, remove things that don’t belong, and so on.

One idea I have is to add a Principle #0:

“All choices have consequences; inaction is also a choice.”

This appears to be a recurring theme in Upstarta blog posts as well as in talks and mentoring activity, and it’s somewhat fundamental to everything else hence the idea to make it the first item.

This, and a few other suggested changes, are on the Upstarta Principles page. You can comment/discuss on this post, or discuss via email. Looking forward to your input!
