The need to break rules

Sometimes we just need to break the rules. Now I’m not talking about anything illegal or of the form that could get you in major trouble. I’m talking like white lie rule breaking or some implicit rule breaking. It’s good to break the rules that aren’t strongly regulated or enforced. It gives you a chance to do something that you may not normally do and who knows, could cause someone to drop the rule.

The classic saying that it is better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. That is the rule breaking I’m talking about. It pushes our boundaries and makes us expand our view. I’ll take the chance to break a small rule over most other experiences any day. Why? It is exciting, it is risky and it can be a hell of a lot of fun. It is no fun when you get caught, but that is part of the game. A lot of times you learn more the times you get caught in these instances than the times you don’t.

So go ahead and break a rule or two.
