“He who doesnt not trust enough, will not be trusted. No trust given, none received” – Lao Tzu
Third lesson I got from reading Smart Trust. Reciprocity.
The very familiar advise of “Do unto others what you want others to do unto you” is very apt for this lesson. I was a little surprised that this works for trust too, as I have always been taught that trust has to be earned, rather than given.
The authors have successfully convinced me that reciprocity works for trust through their many examples where trust was first extended to others.
This is something I definitely have to work on.
