1) Be impeccable with your word.
2) Don't take things personally.
3) Don't make assumptions.

I am not ashamed to admit that I have a horrible time with number two.

Silly and not useful for actually solving the problem at hand, but that is how I see things sometimes. Anybody have any more agreements they would like to add? Any that you struggle with?
