25 Things That Are Typically Encouraged More Than They Should Be

Without a doubt you will probably disagree with at least some of the items on this list, as they are by nature subjective. But that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be considered as some things really are encouraged way more than they should be. Some of these points are probably more relevant to your life than others. Even if they aren’t though, there are certainly people out there that could probably stand to benefit from reading that one point you disagree with.

For example, one of the points is suing people for everything. If you are a lawyer, you may disagree with us. Another point is not sleeping. If you are a middle manager who needs his employees to be productive, you may disagree with us. And that is fine. But there are also people who would agree with the given point. Such is the nature of subjectivity. You think that retributive justice is a good thing and should be encouraged, the next person doesn’t (that’s actually another point on our list). Disagreement is fine, and as we said before, you’ll probably agree with some points and disagree with others. We’re all different, and that’s what we would expect in a pluralistic society. Having said that, these are 25 Things That Are Typically Encouraged More Than They Should Be.

While encouraging kids to do their best and go as far as they can is a good thing, telling everyone they can be something like president is not. For one, being president of a country typically has pre-requisites related to things like where you born. You can’t change that.
