Five minutes ago

You are under no obligation to be the same person you were 5 minutes ago.

A quote from Alan Watts.

What a simple and powerful idea. This is the growth mindset. It’s why it’s OK to flip-flop” and change your stance on something. What did you learn in the last five minutes that makes you rethink what you think? How does one keep themselves open to this line of thinking?

We learn something new, and adjust. It’s part of the process. Continuous growth. We used to think the brain stops learning and growing once we hit adulthood. We now know this isn’t true.

I’m challenging myself to keep this top of mind. Perhaps it’ll make it’s way into my Twelve Favorite Problems.
