“Opportunities are never lost they are just passed on to someone else”-Kevin Snyder
Eyes were locked and minds penetrated when one of the “N-ovative discussion” panelist(Mr Bryant Jackson) imparted this rather simple however profound rule with the audience. The rule is the transformation and the evolution of a previously existing rule called the “40-40-40 rule”. The original rule translates into an individual working 40 hours a week, working for 40 years, for 40 percent of what they made. However, the more refined and structured 40-40-40-40-40-40 rule looks at the individual through a more focused lens that critically dissects the motives and accolades looked to be achieved at varying levels of life. This rule in its essence challenges the status quo and looks to pose the question of why settle for what is seen as being the underwhelming normal, when beyond that you can create a myriad of things and maintain your autonomy.
