Break a rule and win!
As a writer, I often hear, when writing do it this way because this is the proven method. Fail to do that and you lose. Argh! That makes my skin itch raw. Sure there are rules to follow and break, but holy moley they’re not meant to lordy over us.
I watched a short video (2:24) with Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken for the Soul book series, talking about a farmer who won a long distance race. This was the first race ever for the 61 year old and he didn’t know the rules. He wore boots, overalls and a cap for six long days. He didn’t know squat about long distance racing such as you race during the day and sleep at night rule. He raced non-stop during those six days.
He won! He won because he went after something he really wanted to do. What rules can you leave by the way-side and come up winning?
