Getting Along With People

Soundings, Vol. 4, # 8

Five suggestions for getting along with people:
  1. Never miss a chance to say a kind or encouraging word to or about somebody. Praise good work, no matter who does it.

  2. When you make a promise, keep it. Just don't make too many.

  3. Hold your tongue. Always say less than you think. Speak softly and persuasively. How you say something often means more than what you say.

  4. Show an interest in others--in their pursuits, their work, and their families. Have fun with those who rejoice. Weep with those who mourn. Let everyone you meet, however humble, feel that you regard him or her as important.

  5. Be cheerful. Don't depress others by dwelling on your aches and pains, and small disappointments. Remember, everyone has some burden to carry.
