A similar parable. A man once told him son to sharpen his pencil before he started doing his homework. Years later, when the son was a grown man, he realized that all he had to do was sharpen a pencil and his mind went into work mode. We can let phantom rules work against us, or we can create them to work for us. Thanks for a great read! :)
