    The Four Agreements

    Great book, will change your life. By Don Miguel Ruiz.

    In a nutshell The Four Agreements are:

    1. Be Impeccable With Your Word.
    2. Don't Take Anything Personally
    3. Don't Assume Anything
    4. Do Your Best


    If you don't see yourself in those four agreements you aren't looking.

    I read it years ago. It's a short read and I found by re-reading I got more out of it...

    I don't know about changing my life, but it makes some really valid points about how a person might conduct their lives. Like most humans I reverted back to my old self shortly afterwards...

    There is one simple rule to live by: Treat others as you would like to be treated. I have found this works well. Not perfect at it, but it is my guiding principle.

    This ^^ prompts two "stunning" comments:

    1. Stunning how many people either forget or neglect this principle.
    2. Stunning how many people preach about this principle and yet never practice it.

    I too try and live by this principle.

    Indeed. Failure to do so is why P&R is gone.

    Nobody's perfect, right? It's an aspiration.
