“Rule 62 – don’t take yourself so damn seriously”
The story is described in the Alcoholics Anonymous book known in AA as the 12 and 12. The story is that early in the history of AA, a group out in the hinterlands convinced the local town to fund a recovery, treatment, AA facility. This was going to be an elaborate facility with space for medical treatment, residential recovery, and AA meetings.
The local group setting up this facility started coming up with rules on how things should be run, who could be admitted etc. And naturally, there was much disagreement over all this. To try to resolve their differences, they sent a copy of their 61 rules to the NY office of AA. The volunteers at NY had no idea on how to run a large facility or what to say to this group about their rules. While they were discussing it, another message from the group was delivered saying simply:
Rule 62, don’t take yourself so damn seriously. Apparently, they had decided that the potential ego-driven rewards of running a big facility were not worth the risk of tearing their group apart.
My purpose for the Rule 62 Podcast Episodes is to do just that…not take myself so seriously and to remind those listening to not take them selves to seriously.
