habit, cognitive-load = "Leo Babauta writes about living an intentional life. “Many of us go through our days awake, but following patterns we’ve developed over the years,” he says, “Contrast this with the idea of an Intentional Life: everything you do is done with consciousness, fulfilling one of your core values (compassion, for example). Everything is done with a conscious intent.”"

Delegate or die: the self-employed trap. | Derek Sivers
I answered the question, but more importantly, I explained the thought process and philosophy behind my answer.
“Yes refund his money in full. We'll take a little loss. It's important to always do whatever would make the customer happiest, as long as it's not outrageous. A little gesture like this goes a long way to him telling his friends we're a great company. Everyone always remember that helping musicians is our first goal, and profit is second. You have my full permission to use that guideline to make these decisions yourself in the future.”
1.Gather everybody around.
2.Answer the question, and explain the philosophy.
3.Make sure everyone understands the thought process.
4.Ask one person to write it in the manual.
5.Let them know they can decide this without me next time.
As part of learning it, they had to document it in the manual, and show it to someone else, too. (Learn by teaching.)
