Ideas

DO NOT COVET YOUR IDEAS.

Give away everything you know, and more will come back to you.

You will remember from school other students preventing you from seeing their answers by placing their arms around their exercise book or exam paper.

It is the same at work, people are secretive with ideas. ‘Don’t tell them that, they’ll take credit for it.’

The problems with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves. Eventually you’ll become stale.

If you give away everything you have, you are let with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware, to replenish.

Somehow the more you give away the more comes back to you.

Ideas are open knowledge. Don’t claim ownership.

They’re not your ideas anyway, they’re someone else’s. They are out there floating by on the ether.

You just have to put yourself in a frame of mind to pick them up.

Paul Arden

This sums up my reasons for creating this blog. I had a couple of images and wallpapers in folders that I made some time ago and I decided the best move was to publish them. This inspires me to create more and more. Also, I think this is the tendency of life and human relations thanks to technology and the ease of accessing information (the internet). Yet, I don’t agree completely with Paul Arden but that is another thing.
