The last rule is: Break all the rules.
Wedding ourselves to a mode of practice can be a great way to build our knowledge and skills.
But if we stick with it too long — if it’s the only way we work towards our goal — it oftens leads to a plateau.
Then we must break our rules.
We must always challenge our practice, challenge the rules and methods we use and ask: do these rules still serve me?
Are these rules guiding or blocking me?
