It is funny how told stories are of rags to riches but we want be careful on that terms. There are a lot of people who have been successful but didn’t really make a lot of money but have built success on different terms, and we want want to listen to them very carefully.
There ia all the talks about innovation, creative and insight but more, and more, I’m noticing that the experiences I’m gathering are not geared towards innovation — the trend is, do one thing, one experience and face just that. To be truly creative, I think, one must have several, and different experiences.
Think of it as someone who is on the 13th floor of a busy street, we certainly would have a more holistic experience than one who is on the ground level.
The key thing is, being able to connect experiences together, you cannot have the same bag of connection that everyone else does, else, you’d make the same connection and cannot be distinct. The thing is to make different connection through differing experience.
Successful people often have a large pool of experience to draw from, it’s not all about being right, being religious, being this or that, maybe a bit of wrongness, a bit of irreligiousity, a bit here and there to broaden one’s persepective in life.
Turns out, the world is a pool of resources, contributed by others, we are using much of others contribution, I’m starting to realise that asa much as I’m drawing out of this pool, I’m I giving back into the pool?
What experiences I’m I leading that others can tap off.
