Preservation (Over Recovery)

Character is much easier kept than recovered. – Thomas Paine

Just as it’s easier to keep an existing customer than to acquire a new one, character and trust is much, much, much harder to recover once it’s is lost than it is to maintain.

Therefore, resolve to live in such a way:

That you don’t deceive.

That you don’t take advantage.

That you don’t take the easy way out.

That you don’t shrink from opportunities to help or serve when the arise.

That you don’t expect something for nothing.

That you don’t forego chances to be kind.

That you don’t play one off the other

That you don’t . . . well, you get the idea by now I imagine.

At the very least, treat others the way you wish to be treated.*

Whenever possible, treat others the way they wish to be treated.**
