Following rules is always better than making judgements.

This does not imply that following the rules will always lead to success as you define it, but following rules will more often lead to success than making judgements will.

“I tend not to alter the way I speak depending on my audience. I talk to drunks as though they were sober, foreigners as though they had an English vocabulary to match mine, and small children as though they were sane. By and large I find that people rise to the occasion.” – Lindybeige

Lindybeige is the alter ego of one Nikolas Lloyd, who has a very fascinating Youtube channel.
