This morning I listened to John Maxwell talk about ‘rules’ and I agree that we need them. He said his favourite business sign reads, “There are no rules here, we’re trying to accomplish something.”
Rules are generally given to people who need boundaries. And, we are a very rule oriented universe. However, I think the fewer rules, the better. When I work with children I have only 3 rules: No hurts, Be safe, Try your best. I think these are all the rules we need to function in our society.
My go to rule is the Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” It’s simple!
