It’s Time For New Rules

Why do we hold tenaciously to the habits of the past?

We applaud the visionaries yet submit to the functionaries.

We convene pointless meetings, we draft worthless memos, and then congratulate ourselves for being busy.

We spend time worrying about our jobs instead of doing our jobs. (And are surprised when we lose our jobs).

We act as if success comes from our ability to follow the rules when history proves that it comes from breaking the rules.

We ignore that the current definition of success is making new rules.

We act as if nothing is wrong when everything is wrong.

We act as if nothing has changed when everything has changed.

It’s time to stop worrying.

It’s time to get into trouble.

It’s time to make new rules.
