In today’s post, Seth Godin reminds us that the first rule of any game should be “All players must agree to not cheat.”
It’s a metaphor for workers, companies, governments and regulators. When only one of them cheats, the others can often contain the damage. When all of them cheat (think 737 MAX), you get a human catastrophe.
Thus, the second rule of the game should be “If a player cheats, no other player will tolerate it.”
