QUOTE: The authors say the simple rules can be applied to work and personal challenges through a three-step process:
#3. Craft the Rules
Defining the rules requires taking the time to think through your challenge and involving others — particularly in organizational settings where broad-based input, a shared understanding, and buy-in are critical to formulating and implementing successful rules. That’s why Weima managing director Martin Fritz convened a cross-functional team to come up with the four rules that his company eventually adopted to sort out its wealth of sales opportunities.
“The best rules aren’t just the first ideas that occur to you. Rules you can actually follow usually come from diverse sources,” explains Eisenhardt. “When a St. Louis lawyer struggling with depression crafted her rules, she consulted a few self-help books and a credible website, talked with her doctor, and tracked her own behavior.” 
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
