Why Play By The Rules – Imagination

Why always play by the rules? At first, this statement seems like a very rebellious defiance, a blatant retort. But this line is not actually a statement, it is a question. It is a question which begs us to think outside the box, to play the game in a new way.

Why always follow the rules if you can do something amazing and something beautiful by doing something different altogether?

Rules here do not necessarily mean written rules and laws. They also include guidelines and parameters according to which we have to function. However, if we were to always follow set guidelines and trends, there would be no innovation in the world; there would be no new, no brilliant and crazy idea which would change the world, just like the idea a few people had in the first half of the 20th century, to start an organization named AIESEC, which wanted to expand the understanding of countries by expanding the understanding of the individuals, one person at a time. It was a crazy idea, one completely different from anything that was happening, one which was a strange idea to many, and just look where that idea is today.

Perhaps the best way to not play by the rules is coming up with an idea which is so unique and so simple that there are no rules made for it. And to do that, we have to use the strongest weapon mankind possesses; imagination.

Imagination has no rules, no boundaries, no limits. Why play by the rules when you can imagine? Why play by the rules when you can create them?


Imagine, just like John Lennon did in his song, and create something so beautiful that rules do not matter.
