I understand rules and guidelines, but not when it limits potential.
I understand there has to be a process of exploration. But when you've explored what is possible and there seems to still be a lack of excitement in your discovery, its time to reconsider a rule and challenge any traditional way of thinking.
Try the complete opposite of an the rule, see what comes of it, and feel what if feels like.
I believe revelation will be found in the unknown, unfamiliar, uncomfortable.
