DRAFT -- 10/7/14
1.       Recovery (body, mind, spirit) first: Thinking is a wonderful tool, a terrible master.
2.      Love (do HP’s will) God and love (help) my neighbors. Don’t love any rules or plan.
3.      Be hard on myself, watch for dishonesty, selfishness, self-centeredness, and fear.
4.      No resentments: Be gentle and forgiving of others, give them the benefit of the doubt.
5.      Examine/ 11th step 2x/ day: Pause, connect, be grateful, correct, ask for help.
6.      Simple plan: What does HP want me to be, what am I called to do next?
7.      Start now. Tomorrow morning start again. Persistence is actually repeated starts.
8.      Be a life-long learner: Watch one, do one, teach one, then write about it.
9.      PERMA Metrics 0 to 5: Positive, Engaged, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplished.
10  Don't have a group meeting when we can talk 1 to 1. Don't call when I can be there. Don't write when I can call. Don't post comment when I can write message.
