First, brainstorm. Sit down with a pencil and paper and write down every idea that comes to you without stopping to question whether this is a good or bad idea. After you have done this for some time, then you can look back at your list and decide which ideas can be used in your essay.

Another technique you might try to get yourself started is freewriting. Sit down with a pencil and paper, set a timer for 15 minutes, and then just start writing. Don't try to write an essay. Don't worry about spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Just write whatever comes to mind about the topic. If you go blank, keep writing. You can write the question over and over again until your brain unfreezes.

Once you have a better sense of what you think about the question, then you can start to think about outlining and then drafting an essay. But you've got to explore your thoughts -- in words, on paper -- first.

Well, your task is to determine whether established rules are too limited to guide people in real-life situations. The first thing you need to consider is how you feel about established rules; are there too many; are they too limited; are they not able to govern real-life situations (for example a speed limit of 60 is obviously ungovernable because people are going to drive at speeds, maneuver around each other, slow down for traffic, etc. So your task here should be to consider your opinion on "established rules" and how you think they work (limit) in real life situations. Do they or don't they? Do some work better then others? Explore the topic and write a good essay. Good luck!

I suggest that you can make the topic more specific. For example, confime it to a specific kind of people, like soldiers. It is right for soldiers to obey established rules? What can happen if so?

Or consider scientist, previous rules always tell them what cannot be done, like travelling faster than light is an impossibility. But scientific development always turn these impossibilities into possibilities.

Or consider a specific situation, should one obey traffic rules at any condition?

Maybe you can broaden horizons by doing so.
