Logic Of The Day: 06.08.2018.
The risk of learning is that you might have to completely change who you are and what you’re doing as a result of what you’ve learned. Yet, when you’ve reached some level of success or experience, you don’t want to change.
You don’t want to lose everything you’ve gained. And this ends up being the beginning of your inevitable downfall. This is the reason author Greg McKeown said, “Success is a catalyst for failure.”
The measure of intelligence is the ability to change. If you’re not changing and evolving, you’re relying too heavily on knowledge rather than imagination. You’re relying too heavily on experience rather than creativity.
You’re stuck in the past. You’re living out a predictable life. And predictability is nowhere to be found in courage and creativity.
As Sir Ken Robinson said, “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” Seth Godin similarly said, “If you’re willing to do something that might not work, you’re closer to becoming an artist.”
Allow your success and experience to propel greater imagination and creativity. Allow your knowledge to spark new and better behaviors and solutions which lead that knowledge to be replaced with better knowledge.
