What to follow?
For every Yin advice, there’s a Yang.
For every, “hey look at the outcome”, there is, “forget the result and focus on the process”. Meditate 10 minutes, do intermittent fasting, send random gifts, hold your cards close: the list goes on.
There’s so much contradiction — what is that you will follow? Or do?
What works for you would definitely not work for me in its entirety. It will not.
There will be some parts that may seem to work, but parts are not the whole.
There is no silver bullet.
There is not one playbook that fits all scenarios.
The field keeps changing as does the culture. What is accepted today will not be so tomorrow.
Then again, what to follow?
Hey, don’t look at me here. I am the one asking questions.
I have a few things that work for me now. I had a few things that worked earlier. What tomorrow will bring, hey, I am living for today.
So, here are simple outlier rules that I follow. What you follow is up to you! This is my article, isn’t it :)
Learn the rules
Play the rules
Master the rules
Make your own rules.
I need to figure out what I want, when I want it. And how.
Then, what do I need to do to get that done?
If it worked, repeat, and scale.
If not, tweak and repeat!
What to follow?
I will look at sources, random and referred, in the direction I want to go.
What to take from there, and what to drop is my decision alone.
I own the outcomes that those decisions will lead me to.
So, do I then follow myself?
