The Last Rule

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?
