Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Rules of Three

I discovered something when I started putting the lexicon together. I use Rules of Three a lot. Part of it is a memory trick, it’s easier to remember things in groups of three. Part of it’s a focus, it’s easier to tell people and to get things done in groups of three.

And part of it is just because three is a magick number.

So as of this morning, here are the current rules of three that I have listed. There will be more.

Start by listening.
Before you say anything, listen again.
Just to make sure you understand, listen again.

Ask questions. Question the answers. Question your questions.

Let people discover truth before you speak.
Make sure the truth is necessary before you speak.
Judge if the listener is worthy of truth before you speak.

If you find information on the internet, verify it with three
offline, reputable, and independent sources and experiment BEFORE you depend on it

To ease your pain and shame, share it separately with three people you trust

Test it thrice

Honor expects three warnings before you act

Words matter. Actions matter more. Intentions don’t.

Know what you can do.
Know what you're willing to do.
Know the price you're willing to pay.

What you think you know is not what you
need to know.
Where you are is not
where you need to be.
Who you believe you are is not
who you were meant to be.

Books aren't destinations, they're signposts.
Like it or not, you still make the journey yourself.
You can always go further than the book can carry you.

Don’t hold someone responsible unless they were present, of age, and participating.
