The Secret / Rule #3

Posted on June 23, 2009 in: Uncategorized by Andrew Birkhead

The third rule was borrowed from the book No More Mr. Nice Guy. It’s a simple rule that comes in handy for a handful of situations. I’ll tell you about a few of them.

3. Do nothing in secret.

I like to use this rule when I have an agenda. Getting the agenda out in the open frees me to be completely in the moment with another person. I’m also a fan of admitting mistakes, even if no one knows about them, by turning myself in. Do this, too, when you’ve broken an agreement, turn yourself in and make a new agreement. Try keeping everything in the open by doing nothing in secret. Speaking my agendas, turning myself in, and owning my mistakes has fundamentally changed my intimate relationships for the better.
