Speed of Trust


  • We need to differentiate between:
    • a goal
    • a direction
    • a focus
    • an actual commitment
  • Three accelerators:
    • Keep commitment to yourself
    • Stand up for something
    • Be open
  • Values are found in your soul, not in a book
  • Purity of motives =/= good. There is no value judgment in the phrase “pure motives”. It just means you have no hidden agenda. It might very well be that your sole agenda is to destroy a person’s career, and you openly declare it. That would be a pure motive as well, albeit a purely evil one.
  • It’s human tendency to assume we ourselves have good—or at least justifiable—intents.
