    5. 5. Automattic CreedI will never stop learning. I won’t just work onthings that are assigned to me. I know there’s nosuch thing as a status quo. I will build ourbusiness sustainably through passionate andloyal customers. I will never pass up anopportunity to help out a colleague, and I’llremember the days before I knew everything. I ammore motivated by impact than money, and Iknow that Open Source is one of the mostpowerful ideas of our generation. I willcommunicate as much as possible, because it’sthe oxygen of a distributed company. I am in amarathon, not a sprint, and no matter how faraway the goal is, the only way to get there is byputting one foot in front of another every day.Given time, there is no problem that’sinsurmountable.Matt Mullenweg viahttp://ma.tt/2011/09/automattic-creed/
