Monk and rock stories
~ Be willing to "let go," forgive, and look past the shortcomings in others. When you do this, they will be more likely to do it for you. Sometimes you have to hear before you will be heard. (This does not mean that you allow yourself or anyone else to be abused.)
~ Everyone must be treated with dignity and respect.
~ Allow for mistakes and even failure. Look for feedback from failure.
~ Don't worry too much about perfection. Participation is sometimes more important then perfection.
~ Let go of preconceptions.
