8 Tell the truth: At least don’t lie.

9 Listen: Assume the person you are listening to knows something you don’t

10 Be precise in your speech: approach truth with a scalpel.

I am inspired by Dr. Peterson, and pithy statements can have the deep meaning. I recommend mindfulness, and learning about yourself.
