Lead with kindness, breathe, remember the required end result, tidy your desk, play, try, allow initial failure, try again, offer to help, let it go, if you're struggling – try again in the light of day, share your work, communicate genuinely, connect with your tribe – don't aim to please the whole world, never ever ever double dip, head outside, keep your pencils sharp, try something new, close your mouth when you're eating (seriously), encourage curiousity, if it's getting hard try to sit quietly and let the problem breathe rather than procrastinating on Instagram (Elaine), celebrate achieved goals, don't waste paper.
