I was reading about this entrepreneur whose partner was ten years younger to him. Although there is one obvious age difference but more precise differentiation is in the way they think. What impresses me is that the older one had an attitude to ask for business solution to the younger one without putting the curtain of ego. That helped him to think with a new perspective.
With experience, usually what happens is, we try to bind ourselves. Restrict to think beyond the possibilities of what our past has taught us. Thus the basic requirement of, being creative and innovative in problem solving, is lost.
This very experience that we are all proud of becomes the outcome of our fears. A child that has seen fire for the first time, may feel like touching it. But as soon as it burns its hand, the fearsome experience takes the form of lesson 'not to be repeated'
There is a folk tale where the villagers are worried due to delayed rains in the season. So everyone decides to visit a temple at the hill and pray god for rains. Except everyone a little girl comes along with an umbrella. This is not just a power of belief but also how differently a child may think. Without boundaries!
I wanna be a child again to have that innocent creativity and positivism to all the situations in my life.
