Shared Google Doc Norms:
- Visit to share ideas with an intention to serve the collective good. Visit to get ideas with the same intention.
2
- Share the link with others so they can do the same.
3
- Be as concise as you can (I have trouble with this too. I understand you want to say all the things. Spoiler alert, people won't read all the things).
4
- Note this is a public document so stick to your own rows without disrupting the rows of others (unless you want to share related ideas).
5
- I will monitor and adjust as necessary because, not only is concision a challenge of mine, I might also have a tiny control issue over the visual aesthetic of my google docs.

because all of the above can just be so fucking exhausting sometimes): we take what time we need for ourselves and our loved ones, find joy where we can, reflect on our actions and the outcomes they create, then get back up and do it all over again, knowing we won’t always get it right. Wash, rinse, repeat, in a cycle of relentless vigilance, learning and self-care.
