Why I Don't Live By The Rules

JULY 16TH 2010

Why live by the rules? Living by the rules aren't exciting. Taking risks are.

Rules are for wussies.

People in every profession always preach about the right way of doing things. I say f-it.
All that matters are results. If I have a better result than that guy, who cares about the rules.
Being ethical is important-- but we ain't talkin' about ethics-- we're talking about the rules.
Rules work great in a vacuum. But we don't live in a vacuum.
A classic example is institutions. Take school for example. The rules tell you... pursue an education (i.e. college) and you'll be set for life. So why do I make more than some of my professors? Something's not right.
What about the people who go to school for 30 years and get their masters... PhD. what-ever they offer these days -- only to not have a job? Tisk tisk.
Essentially nothing's promised.
So F rules and take risks. The end.
