Why should we seek to understand and follow instructions

The ability/ skill of following instructions is very important for getting through life and career. We might have undesired consequences if do not “master” this ability. Obviously, we need to understand the instructions before we follow them.

If we follow instructions, our tasks become simpler, we do the things more effectively and efficiently, we save time and effort. If we do not follow instructions, we find more difficult to finish the tasks and, sometimes, we have to redo the respective task.

“People who follow instructions show that they are cooperative, intelligent and dependable, while not following instructions can lead to life and death situations that may end tragically.”[1]

Following instructions and rules can preserve our life and well-being. The world would be a complete chaos if no one would follow instructions and rules. For example, if an electrician wouldn’t follow the instructions for installing the electric system in a house, (s)he would put himself/ herself and the users of that electric system at an extreme risk for injury or, even, death.
