The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

This is called the sum up of all the laws and prophets. The universal morality.

Jesus said "in everything, do to others what you would like to be done to you".

In the other words, do not do to others what you would not like to be done to you.

My understanding is before you can apply this golden rule, it requires that you take an affort to understand and comprehense the situation, place, time, feelings and thoughts of another person without which your judgement may not be what is really supposed to be. This effort is never perfect though but at least in most situations it should work.

Put yourself in the shoes of the other person and you now you can understand him or her better. This requires you to spend some time focusing on the other person rather than thinking about yourself.

The Challenge:
  • This golden rule generally works well, however, for situations such as a person harms himself by words and deeds, it wouldn't be adviced nor recommended for him to take this golden rule into practice!
  • People may expect different things in different situations so what you would like another person do to you if you were in his shoes may not be exactly the same.
  • Maybe what another person expects is not fair. For example a proven and serious criminal would like that the the judge releases him as the judge wishes to be released if he was a prisoner himself. So, it's a bit tricky sometimes.

How to Make Decisions Quickly?

For instance you have 10 goals, how do you make a decision which one to pursue first? Have you ever stayed in an indicision state for a long time? This would help:
  • ANALYZE your goals; their benefits and risks; the estimated time required to finish each goal
  • PRIORITIZE your goals if possible; specify the gains and losses of doing and not doing each goal which helps prioritizing them
  • DOCUMENT everything if possible
  • SET DEADLINE in making your decision e.g. 30 minutes (depends)
  • Listen to your INSTINCT and HEART
    • Treat every failure or mistake as a LESSON which takes you one step closer to SUCCESS, so no need to fear of the result of your good decision
    • AVOID wasting time and being perfectionist.
    • ANY GOOD DECISION is better than no good decision, so hurry choose one of which, have perseverance and ENJOY the process!

    Love What You Do

    In order to be successful in whatever you do, you must love what you do.

    If you really do love what you do, no matter what, you will be successful eventually and achieve what you wanted.

    To love, you must have feeling towards something. So, allow your emotions guide you whatever you're doing.

    Showing the love contains of series of certain actions. When you have love, most often you show your love automatically however you can show love consciously as well so that it gets boosted.
