Self-Limiting Is A Useless Practice

Saying you can’t do something, or telling someone they can’t do something because they don’t have a degree is a dangerous statement.

Of course there are exceptions. I wouldn’t want a self taught performing heart surgery on me.

But let’s look within reason.

Do you need to go to law school to understand your rights?

Do you need to become a doctor to get to know how to stay healthy?

Do you need to go to school to learn how to be a handyman or handywoman?

Do you need a masters degree to be a good writer?

Institutional limitations can be necessary for rare cases.

They keep us safe.

But how likely is it that somebody will die if you take a chance on a new project?

Or if you give one to someone who thinks they can do it, but doesn’t have the piece of paper that tells you they can.
