- Nod to the computer before starting to use it, as the samurai bow to their swords before and after training. Silently thank those who made this tool. Become aware of the interconnectedness between tool and user, the oneness of all things.
- The Buddha said it is a great fortune to have an occupation that allows us to be happy, to help others, and to generate compassion and understanding in this world.
