Do not criticize or critique others that which you are guilty of.
- If you hate it when others cut you off in traffic, don’t cut others off in traffic.
- If you don’t like it when others silence you, don’t silence others.
- If you hate it when others talk to you (while looking at their phone), don’t use your phone while talking to others.
Nassim Taleb refers to this as the ‘silver rule of others’ (don’t do unto others as you don’t like others doing unto you). The silver rule seems quite robust in everyday life and just in life in general!
