First learn the rules, then break them..

first learn the rules then break them. quote


I admit it seems counter intuitive to learn something with the sole goal to do the opposite. Sure sometimes rules are there for a reason. They are the rules we are wise to follow. But at the same time there are many assumptions coated in a way that we feel a need to obey their suggestions. If we do not question them, we are set to follow their proscribed route…

Trends are a classic example. Nothing more than a fad – they are something wisely avoided, as fast as they are a hot favorite they are out of the spot light, leaving your space with a definitive time stamp.

By questioning their design ethos you can decide what is right for you. Be brave, write your own rules, something that is unique for you and you only. We need people who dare to break the rules knowingly and to chart their own path without an existing map!

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor Frankl
