Finding symmetries in an unsymmetrical world ..

Lessons from the street

Posted on: May 13, 2009

The pretext before I take up from here : 

 I was reading this amazing post on kindling your curiosity; sure it must have kindled mine, because a day later I found myself writing this.


At the heart of it, Sam lays the proposition “. If we are going to be people who fully develop and maximise our potential, it will be in large part because of our curiosity” , which is quite true, because in the contemporary world IDEAS drive processes .


And here’s the street for you .. 


I was standing in my backyard ,and relishing my evening tea after office ,when I a kid who was running on the ground ,trying to compete, with what it seemed to me , his sibling.

 And while he was running, he fell off. But he did something that most of us adults do not do when we grow up. He KICKED the ground.


 That must have sure kindled my curiosity and the creative genes , enough to mention it here in my post !


 What is it that we unlearn so soon as we grow up, simple, it is fighting back .

 

 When was it last that you stopped by and instead of saying that “it ain’t fair”, fought back instead ? And if you do not remember when it was , you are in serious trouble, and Do something about it !

 

As kids we are curious, have an inherent desire to explore , and reach out to what surrounds us, but as grow up we start taking things for granted .

 


As Seth mentions, when you pass by a cow ,adult that you are, you never say, ohh that’s a cow, but if you pass by a purple cow, you saw ..Waooo did you notice that !

The message is simple , are you being a purple cow, are you worth remarking ?


In the new era of twitter, other such micro blogging phenomenon and seemless social media what is the value to you give to those you interact with . Are you just consuming their time ? (and mind you time is by far the most precious commodity)


So today so something that kindles your creativite quotient, that not only make you say Waoo I did that , but makes you so good enough that people remark about the person you are .

 

This is not to say be good at everything, but be good at one thing ,and that speak out for you .


Before I leave you to yourself,here’s a treat for you !




It is a pretty old one, but substantiates it well !
