When we do a task "right" the first time, we have less clean up to do. Clean up = asking for forgiveness, feeling embarrassed/guilty, running around because we made commitments to do too many things and so on. In a way, we lie ("cheating truth") to ourselves when we don't take into account the feelings of other people as well as taking care of our own needs for rest and play. So we need to be more truthful with ourselves:

  • Truthfulness asks us to be honest about our limitations.
  • Truthfulness asks us to be thoughtful and considerate before we act.
  • Truthfulness asks us to think about the possible consequences of our actions before we act.
