Recent events have made me realize again how crucial it is to have absolute integrity in the workplace and in private life. Having to deal with vague promises and nebulous statements makes one realize the value of the four principles of Toltec wisdom as expounded by Don Miguel Ruiz, and also to realize how hard it is to consistently apply them in everyday life.
1. Be impeccable in your word.
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best
The workplace is where most of us spend the majority of our waking hours, and this is where the four principles are most needed. A change of status in working life is a good moment to remember and rededicate oneself to the principles. Starting right now.
