Although I'm not a fan of Don Miguel Ruiz' philosophy overall (a little too new age spiritual for me), I find his Four Agreements rather compelling in their simplicity. Obviously they can be interpreted in any number of ways, but they aren't supposed to be 'commandments', so much as 'pointers'.

  1. Be impeccable with your word

  2. Don't take things personally

  3. Don't make assumptions

  4. Always do your best (i.e. don't beat yourself up if you can't be a Jedi Master in the above three categories)
