The Four Agreements Agreement 3

“Never ASSUME, car when you ASSUME you make an ASS of you and ME” was the quote popularized by Jerry Belson, the author of television, in the early 70s.

You have to manage the chimpanzee! The third agreement describes the question of whether assumptions are made, how they lead to suffering, and why individuals should not participate in it.
