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.
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.

On the last post I talked about a post on Presentation Zen. I didn’t have it until now. It’s called Personal Kaizen (here). The first time I heard this word was on a business and management high school class. I was just amazed by how Reynolds used it in a more personal way. I just love it when two separate things (business theory and personal improvement) are used together in such a natural and enriching way.
I was inspired to create this blog on some of the tips that Reynolds mentions.
Thanks for your time!
