Do you want to sleep at night?
I am sure we all try to push the boundaries from time to time, but there is a big difference between pushing them as far as possible and stepping over the line.
Tax advisors, for example, know full well the difference between tax avoidance and tax evasion - one is acceptable in law, although sometimes not morally right, the other might result in jail!
Young children work this out quickly, they get to know the difference between definitely no, and a soft no, and exploit it usually - so from that young age the seeds are set! Nowadays, unlike before the digital age, what we do or say can come back to bite, so it's even more important to stay within the boundaries, and then you can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep, and not worry about someone digging up some old comment, email, post, tweet or fiddle. `
