There’s power in knowing what our rules are. There’s even more power in exclaiming what those rules are or using “the rule” for the justification for why we do what we do or won’t do.
People respect rules.
It’s significant when we say, I have a rule that I don’t work after 6pm or I have a rule that I don’t talk on the phone when I’m at dinner. Or, I have a rule that I don’t mix business with fun.
When we say we have a rule, we remove the choice and debate.
Let us be flexible but know what we stand for today.
