[AONC] Before You Follow the Rules, Question the Rules
Welcome back! I hope you’ve been well.
So since you have the power to choose, how will you apply this power?
- Why does this rule exist?
- Who made this rule?
- Who benefits from people following this rule?
- What are the consequences of breaking this rule?
Still, a lot of rules exist for no reason at all except to enrich the person who made the rule, or because "this is how it’s always been done.” When someone gives you the “just because” answer, you know you’ve found a rule that’s worth questioning further.
Questioning the rules helps you think.
“Thinking is hard work, which is why you don't see many people doing it.”
Do you hate your job? Maybe you should quit tomorrow. If you can't quit tomorrow, okay—but you should definitely begin making plans to move on as soon as you can.
Do you want to see the world? There’s no reason to wait. You can go anywhere on the planet by saving just $2 a day for less than a year. (More on this in an upcoming message.)
- How much higher education should you pursue? Well, as much as you need and no more—and there might be another way to learn what you need.
Yours in the revolution,
