You should assume that best practices get you carried away 

When someone steps on your foot, you’re not going to be happy about it. Likewise,  when somebody bumps into you or you bump into somebody else. The person that’s bumped into isn’t going to be happy about it. 

Knowing this means we can be prepared for the worst and avoid getting into a fist fight over something so trivial and commonplace as bumping into each other. 

We know it’s human nature to blow things out of proportion.

When it comes to things like best practices that prescribe how you should act you should be equally skeptical of things getting out of hand. 

Why? Because when we talk about how we almost always neglect should. It’s very likely were doing things the right way that shouldn’t be done at all. 

So if you want to be more successful, tune your spidey senses to be skeptical of best practices and always make sure to rein yourself, and others, in.

There’s nothing wrong with trying to do things the right way but certainly nobody wants to do things that they shouldn’t have to do.
