There's no right way to do it

For thousands of years up until the late 19th century, it was common medical practice to withdraw blood from a patient to prevent or treat illness. Of course, we’ve since learned that this way of treating patients doesn’t work the way we thought it did. 

Just over a decade ago, the primary way to share content with the world was through agents and media managers. Now with platforms like YouTube, Medium, TikTok, and LinkedIn, sharing content is just a few clicks away. 

When no existing martial art aligned perfectly with his philosophy and experience, the late martial artist and actor Bruce Lee decided to invent his own, calling it Jeet Kune Do. 

The idea that there is a right way to do something doesn’t acknowledge the ability to learn, modify, adapt, and invent. 

A more accurate framing: there is no right way to do anything, there’s just the way it’s currently done. 

Fully accepting this offers unprecedented freedom and possibility to explore, experiment, and discover new ways of doing things.
