Rules for rule-breakers

Ah.. the irony!

If you feel the need to fracture a rule or two, I think you might need some guidelines.  So here are some suggestions (feel free to add your own):

  1. Start with why – understand what the rule is intended to achieve;
  2. Challenge the rule – speak with the creator and explain its shortcomings;
  3. Listen to the answer.  No, REALLY listen.  You might change your mind;
  4. If you still feel the need, make sure that you are motivated by letting the good happen.  Flagrant iconoclasm will annoy people;
  5. Take personal responsibility for the consequences.
