The art of cheating

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on februar 14, 2009

Remember when your prep school teacher told you to “paint inside the lines”?

How did that make you feel?
Did it make you want to grab those crayons and get at it?
Or did painting all of a sudden seem like a task?

Your teacher not only gave you a rule or boundary, but also told you what to paint by handing you that colouring book.

Then you cheated, and painted exactly how you wanted to anyway- and it felt good.

Cheating feels good because we hate to be told what and how to paint.

We can handle one or the other, but give us both and we rear. So go ahead, and be creative exactly the way you want to. The result may be better off because of it.
