Defying rules do not make you more free than those that do obey them. It is knowing how to see things in perspective and know who has your best interests in mind and knowing what risk you are willing to take for what purpose.
It seems a challenge of this generation to want to throw everything away that was worked on for years. A tendency to throw everything old away. There are many systems of education and work that are seriously outdated and younger people see how it counterproductive and start resisting against it.
Many of these systems are based on outdated believes about health, wellbeing and the brain. They can be very damaging.
Nevertheless throwing things out that work together with what doesn't work seems overkill. Throwing the baby out with the bath water.
So what do we need to be able to test if things work or not?
Test small scale and small risks and scale up over time.
Many tech companies including Tesla have been on the brink of bankruptcy because they have to take risks in order to move on.
Yes, many mistakes can be avoided by looking from other good entrepreneurs but markets change all the time, people change all the time and risks and opportunities change all the time.
If you are at the cutting edge of your field then you are stepping in to new territory and you have to create your own sustainable test methods to proceed because nobody is been there before.
From everyday life to being a great entrepreneur having a good test and feedback procedure that you update and improve over time is crucial.
