49: Give it all away

Give away everything you know, and more will come back to you

Do you remember your time back in school? While working, some students would place their arms around their work so as to prevent other students from seeing their work and therefore stop them from copying

As you get older, it turns out it’s the same at work, people are secretive with their ideas “don’t tell them that, they’ll take the credit for it”

The problem with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves, eventually you’ll run out and become stale

If you give everything away on the other hand, you are left with nothing and therefore forced to replenish

Somehow the more you give away the more comes back to you

Ideas are open knowledge. Don’t claim ownership

They’re not your ideas anyway, they’re someone else’s. They are out there floating by on the ether

You just have to put yourself in a frame of mind to pick them up

There’s nothing new under the sun

All ideas are recycled and built on from previous ideas

That’s how it works

Be well
