Assumptions are not fair to the other person involved 


drama usually stems from assumptions




assumptions assume that others see the world as you do 


assumption places blame before an explanation

  5. Lose credibility

 4. Always do your best


 

“Under any circumstance, always do your best, no more and no less. But keep 
in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next. Everything 
is alive and changing all the time, so your best will sometimes be high quality, and other times it 
will not be as good."



your best doesn't mean always wining, but it does mean giving it all you have





do your best at the other three agreements

 

Just do your best – in any circumstance of your life. If you always do your best then there is no 
way you can judge yourself. And if you don’t judge yourself there is no way you are going to 
suffer from guilt, blame, and self-punishment. By always doing your best, you will break a big 
spell that you have been under.
