WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS

by Kristen Baumgartner

Ah…there you are. The defiant rebels. The out-of-the-box thinkers. The army of John Benders with fists in the air. Welcome to the Rule Breakers Club. 

In our “work-lives”, the defiant are often frowned upon. Those who DON’T follow process, suggest a different way of doing things, and challenge the status quo are often shunned and basically sent to all-day Saturday detention for their crimes. It’s been the same old tune all throughout history.

One individual challenged the largest academic entity of the time and was forced to spend the rest of his life under house arrest for claiming the earth was not the center of the universe. Now known as the father of modern science, Galileo might have actually had a point.

Then there was the fellow that was accused of “unseemly conduct” and possible witchcraft when found to be dissecting cadavers to prove the heart was the center of circulatory system. Da Vinci’s anatomical illustrations influenced 19th and 20th century medical practices, so he might have been on to something.

Then there were the traitors that rebelled against their King and had the audacity to forge a separate nation. But these days Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson seem to have been given some credibility.

Let’s move to an example that is closer to home for those of us in the Sage 100 and Sage Manufacturing space ...
