I found these rules on Facebook and modified them a little to include 13 rules of good behavior. Common decency, otherwise known as the rules of etiquette, requires most of us to follow these rules of good behavior.
How many of these common actions do you take while interacting with others? You’ll find that marketing, social media, networking, and partnering with others will always go more smoothly if you adopt these guidelines.
If you move it, put it back.
If you drop it, pick it up.
If you break it, admit it.
If you can’t fix it, find someone who can.
If you open it, close it.
If you turn it on, turn it off.
If you have to apologize, don’t do it again.
If you make a mess, clean it up.
If you value it, take care of it.
If it’s not your business, don’t ask questions.
If you borrow it, return it.
If you tear it, mend it.
If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.
