Rules. We have lots of them. Some are more important than others. Very important rules are called laws. Less important rules may be referred to as corporate policy. Unimportant rules are called rules of thumb. Many rules strung together may be known as a methodology. If not documented, they may just be called best practices.

As children, we hated rules. As teenagers, we did whatever we could to break the rules (or beat the system). As adults, we make or follow rules. If we get into the right position, we can change the rules when they don’t work for us.
