Have you ever read an article or looked at some notes from long ago and thought “wow, this is really pertinent to me today,”? Are you surprised when that happens? Don’t be. People have been having good ideas (even you!) for a long time…and good ideas generally don’t expire. If they were good then they likely can work now.
We spend so much time thinking of new and improved ways to do things when perhaps we should consider tweaking things we’ve done or thought to do before.
Innovate, yes, but also look back, steal and modify the great ways of getting things done that you’ve learned about and practiced already.
