Is the goal to never make a mistake?

Since we were young, school has taught us to follow the step-by-step instructions to get an A, to blend in, color in the lines, follow the rules and you will be rewarded.

But in the real world, what are the rules? We have social norms and laws but there is no map to living a life of meaning because living a life of other people’s expectations is neither fulfilling nor rewarding.

The alternative is to break the rules–the false boundaries we put on ourselves. Challenge the status-quo. Make something better. Do something you haven’t done before. Stand up. Stand out. Make the change you are seeking to make.

Better to live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a sheep.
