“The rules is the rules.”
I’m pretty sure it was Popeye who said that.
Whoever it was, he or she is right. The rules of life are the rules. What got you ahead two hundred years ago still applies today. What works in California works in Mississippi…and Italy, China, and Morocco.
And yet, so often we try to find the exceptions to the rules or make our own. We fight against the current, rather than riding it. How exhausting and unproductive!
I’ve written numerous posts about the “rules” of life and success. Here are some of my favorites.
Almost every time I write something about networking, relationship-building, or the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people, I get asked:
What about us introverts?
There are no special rules for you. Just as there are no special rules for extroverts.
