Useless rules

2019-06-21

What useless rules can you ignore today?

Every bad rule that’s ever been created was dreamed up with good intentions. And yet it’s hard to think of rules as things that are optional. Once something is a rule it’s hard to ignore, if it’s not getting the results it was designed for.

If a rule is giving bad results (maybe because it’s impossible to stick to), maybe beating yourself up and trying to apply more willpower isn’t the solution. Maybe you’re fighting a losing battle against a crappy rule. Identify those cases and adjust accordingly and I guarantee you will be happier and more productive.
