SIMPLE ADVICE

EXCERPT FROM THE GOLDEN BOOK

BY DALE CARNEGIE

  • BEGIN WITH PRAISE AND HONEST APPRECIATION.
  • CALL ATTENTION  TO PEOPLE’S MISTAKES INDIRECTLY.
  • TALK ABOUT YOUR OWN MISTAKES BEFORE CRITICIZING THE OTHER PERSON.
  • ASK QUESTIONS INSTEAD OF GIVING DIRECT ORDERS.
  • LET THE OTHER PERSON SAVE FACE.
  • PRAISE THE SLIGHTEST IMPROVEMENT AND PRAISE EVERY IMPROVEMENT.  BE “HEARTY IN YOUR APPROBATION AND LAVISH IN YOUR PRAISE.”
  • GIVE THE OTHER PERSON A FINE REPUTATION TO LIVE UP TO.
  • USE ENCOURAGEMENT.  MAKE THE FAULT SEEM EASY TO CORRECT.
  • MAKE THE OTHER PERSON HAPPY ABOUT DOING THE THING YOU SUGGEST.

SUCH SIMPLE ADVICE…THAT CAN BRING MORE UNDERSTANDING AND PEACE TO OUR CURRENT WORLD…WOULD YOU AGREE???

your scribe for love
