Ascertaining the value of your word.

There are at least two dimensions to any agreement that you make. One is the reality of the subject matter of the agreement. i.e. one common type of agreement is the agreement to perform some kind of service, provide some kind of product, etc. in exchange for some form of compensation. If it is a written agreement then the particulars of the "exchange" is generally plainly known and typically has some kind of monetary value attached to it.
Then there is the second dimension of your agreement which is your word. For that I most highly recommend reading Don Miguel Ruiz's book "The Four Agreements" which I have blogged about here a number of times. The first agreement is "Be Impeccable with Your Word". The question that I would like you to ask yourself is "what is the value of my word?"
Do you count the value of your word on the same "plane" as the value of your "labor"? Have you heard the anyone ever say "their word is as good a gold"? How much gold content do you have in your word?
