THREE SIMPLE RULES
There are, of course, boundaries.
There are some things we should not want, ask, or do because they:
1. Belong to others
2. Would violate propriety, or
3. Would lead to obvious bad ends.
But otherwise, remember these three principles:
1. If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it
2. If you never ask, the answer will always be no
3. If you don’t step forward, you’ll always be in the same spot
So, if it is not apparent that it would be wrong,
1. Go for what you want,
2. Freely ask questions, and
3. Courageously take that “one step forward.”
Because you never know where these three actions might lead!
