As discussed in class, for this week's blog you will consider rules--not the operational rules that you get detentions for breaking, but the philosophical rules with which we approach life. In Breaking Her Fall, Tucker and his kids establish the following rules for their household:
1. It is what it is.
2. Think for yourself.
3. Show up (on time).
4. Finish what you start.
5. Play hard, play fair.
6. Clear your desk everyday.
7. Don't complain.
8. Be brave, be bold, let not your heart grow cold.
Your blog post should (a) discuss the meaning and importance of at least one of these rules and (b) offer a personal rule of your own. Remember, Tucker's rules have a meaning beyond the surface, so your discussion should delve deeper than just the surface meaning. For your personal rule, you may offer a mantra, philosophy, inspirational quote, or anything else that has meaning for you. Be sure to explain its meaning and importance as well.
