Living our values

My father taught me chess when I was a kid. I learned from him that one good or bad move creates compounding effects on a chessboard, so it’s important to think through steps to win a game. The best moves often come to me after deduction and subtle measurement. The game impacted my way of thinking. I enjoy stilling myself in complexity and capturing insightful answers. Hence, I am towards our value of choose right over easy.
