Stretched by a New Idea

Stretched by a New Idea

Each one of us lives a life with their current set of habits and beliefs and knowledge, and everything that they do is based around that.

But, in this information economy, where one is constantly consuming something, and probably learning something from that consumption, we are not limited to those frameworks anymore.

“The mind once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimension.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes

Once you have learnt or executed something new in your life, your mind has expanded from its previous form to a new one.

It’s not the same anymore, and its then a matter of time before you go in depth of it and that idea introduces a new or changes a previous part of you.

Anything and everything that you consume is now a part of you, and you cannot get rid of it. Somehow, somewhere, the dots are going to get connected, and that new learning plays a part in that.
