Rule #6 – Don’t take yourself so seriously 🙂
Have you heard of Rule #6?
I recently read a book called The Art of Possibility by Benjamin Zander & Rosalind Stone Vander. It’s a book of practices. And as is often the case when we read a book, there’s one or two things that hit like a lightning bolt when we read them, and stay with us long after the last page has been turned. In this book, Rule #6 was the one that really stood out for me.
Rule #6 – Don’t take yourself so seriously.
And in the world where Rule #6 exists, there are no other rules, Rule #6 is the only rule.
It’s a powerful way to help yourself lighten up and regain perspective when it all seems a bit much, and can be a lead in to break the tension in our interactions with others too.

“Life is fleeting.
And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky
when the stars are strung across the velvety night.
And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day,
Make a wish and think of me.
Make your life spectacular.
I know I did”. – Robin Williams
Here is a little reminder about gratitude too.
