Set your house in order

One of the Peterson rules that resonates most deeply with me is that of setting your own house in perfect order before you go and criticize the world. 

Buddhism advises us to first establish in ourselves what is proper before instructing others. That Kondo book - the life-changing magic of tidying up - says basically the same. 

In reference to the post yesterday, much of what politics and political expression is today is the unfiltered projection of folks who don’t have their own house in order. Might be sensible to revisit that.
