I commit to engage when present. To know and disclose what I want, what I think, and what I feel. To always seek effective help. To decline to offer and refuse to accept incoherent emotional transmissions. When I have or hear a better idea than the currently prevailing idea, I will immediately either propose it for decisive acceptance or rejection, and/or explicitly seek its improvement. I will personally support the best idea regardless of its source, however much I hope an even better idea may later arise, and when I have no superior alternative idea.
2 *
I will seek to perceive more than I seek to be perceived.
3 *
I will use teams, especially when undertaking difficult tasks.
4 *
I will speak always and only when I believe it will improve the general results/effort ratio.
5 *
I will offer and accept only rational, results-oriented behavior and communication.
6 *
I will disengage from less productive situations When I cannot keep these commitments, When it is more important that I engage elsewhere.
7 *
I will do now what must be done eventually and can effectively be done now.
8 *
I will seek to move forward toward a particular goal, by biasing my behavior toward action.
9 *
I will use the Core Protocols (or better) when applicable. I will offer and accept timely and proper use of the Protocol Check protocol without prejudice.
10 *
I will neither harm—nor tolerate the harming of—anyone for his or her fidelity to these commitments.
11 *
I will never do anything dumb on purpose.
