I confess that I
stole found this 10 Adopted Rules Of Thumb when surfing the internet today. The words are found painted on the wall of furniture-maker Wendell Castle’s studio (where ever that is). I confess that I wish I was the one that came up with them originally…because almost everything written down, with the exception of #4 which I don’t fully understand…is awesome!
See the rules below and let me know what you thinketh…
- If you are in love with an idea you are no judge of its beauty or value.
- It is difficult to see the whole picture when you are inside the frame. (love this)
- After learning the tricks of the trade don’t think you know the trade.
- We hear and apprehend what we already know.
- The dog that stays on the porch will find no bones.
- Never state a problem to yourself in the same terms it was brought to you.
- If its off beat or surprising its probably useful.
- If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it.
- Don’t get too serious.
- If you hit the bulls-eye every time…the target is too near! (my fav)
