Spark Values


After finishing Ray Dalio’s “Principles” for the second time, I felt compelled to summarize my own principles for Spark. Call it a work in progress!

Spark Values:

When facing a question or decision on whom to hire (or whether to apply to work for us), how to approach a project, or what culture to grow, consider these as some guiding values:

  1. Health: People (including relationships), Projects, Organization, Community, Planet
  2. Clarity (and Authenticity): It takes effort and courage, but is so worth it.
  3. Responsibility: From intrinsic motivation to being fully invested in our projects success.
  4. Learning: Learning,  implementing, evolving.
  5. Excellence: Not perfection
