rule-making and rule-living

Living by rules may seem restrictive, but in reality it can be incredibly liberating and inspiring. Having a set of guidelines to follow can free you from decision fatigue and help you focus on what truly matters. It allows you to channel your energy and creativity into making meaningful choices and taking purposeful actions.

As Austin Kleon says, “Creativity is subtraction”, not addition. Rules give us boundaries within which to work, providing a framework for our ideas and actions. They also give us a sense of structure and purpose, helping us to stay on track and achieve our goals. When we live by rules, we are able to tune out the noise and distractions of the world, and focus on what is truly important to us.

Embrace the rules, and see how they can help you live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
