Codex Vitae

How to Use This Codex

If you are Heath:

  • Develop a habit of using the Codex as a repository for beliefs that develop throughout the year.
  • Consider doing a monthly review of whether my life is in alignment with values and beliefs. If not, should my behaviour change or have my understanding and values changed?
  • Do a yearly review in January of the entire document, editing places where beliefs have changed. Expect beliefs and tactics to change — don’t hold on to them too rigidly.

If you are not Heath:

  • Read this with the understanding that you are different than Heath— the way he lives his life is not the way you should live yours.
  • Consider creating your own Codex Vitae. Feel free to copy anything here that is helpful.

In General

Meta-beliefs

Beliefs about beliefs.

  • What you believe affects the way you see the world.
  • We all come from our own perspectives, and bring our own experiences. There is always another point of view.
  • Every thought and idea builds on what came before it. Nothing is truly original.
  • We lived in an imagined reality, or myth, that we all have to believe and agree on, for the world to function.

Principles

Fundamentals that guide my life.

  • You are responsible. Always.
  • “Luck is where preparation and opportunity meet” – Seneca
  • Show early, show often.
  • “Naming is the orgin of all particular things” Tao Te Ching
