What You’re Afraid Will Happen If You Break the Rules Probably Won’t
All our lives, we are taught to follow the rules. In school, we were told “No running in the hallways!” At home, we were told “No eating dessert before dinner!” But later in life, we learn that not all rules are equal and sometimes breaking the rules is the only way to get ahead. Another word for “Breaking the rules” is “innovation,” and innovation is the best way that a smaller business can get ahead in the marketplace. Thinking outside the box is often considered a good thing in business. Always ask yourself why a rule is in place and what would the consequences be of breaking it. Is it more of a guideline than a rule? Would it really hurt anyone if you broke it? It can take bravery and strength to break the rules. So be brave, and every now and then, try something different. If that thing doesn’t work immediately, have the stamina to push on and see what happens. Break the rules! And if it doesn’t work out, try to be resilient and look at it in a positive light. Even if you fail, you might just learn something new!
