Essential Agreements: Latest News!

This is the updated list of our Essential Agreements:

“Use RASA to become a good listener” see this TED Talk

“Respect everyone and everything”

“Include people if they look excluded”

“Think before you act”

“Work peacefully and concentrate”

We are very close to finalising our Essential Agreements. When we have, we will need to discuss what to do about people who regularly let us down by ignoring them.

    Hi everyone!

    I like the one which says “Respect everyone and everything”. I really like how it’s written because if you just say “Respect everyone” it will mean only us humans but if we say “Respect everyone and everything” it means that you have to respect your surroundings and other people.I also like “Use RASA to become a good listener.” RASA stands for Receive, Appreciate, Summarize and Ask. You need to receive what the person is trying to say then you appreciate it then you summarize what just happened and finally ask questions if you need to. As the speaker said in TedTalks, conscious listening is important for understanding. To be a better listener, we need to practice RASA so that we can communicate with people who you don’t know and be successful in your future life when you have a job.

    I also like the one which says “Respect everyone and everything” because if you just say “Respect everyone” than people might not respect their surroundings and stuff like stationary. They might put it in the wrong place or leave it somewhere without tidying up etc. On the other hand, if you say “Respect everything” then we might not respect other people. I also think “Use RASA to become a good listener” is important because if you listen then you will know what to do and you will have a successful career. I think the at least 3 minutes a day of silence is important because if you don’t have some silence besides sleeping then you will never know when stop talking.
