We treat other people the same at our peril

We treat people the same at our peril, for everyone is different.

I was raised under the banner of the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I learnt from experience that living this rule wasn’t always the best strategy as it often led to outcomes I wasn’t happy with, and, just as often, other people weren’t happy with either.

I was pleased to learn The Platinum Rule® created by Dr Tony Alessandra in 1974.
This rule says “Do Unto Others As They Would Have You Do Unto Them” or "Treat others the way they want to be treated." Living this rule has made a huge difference for me and has helped me immensely to better serve others.

Which rule are you living by?
