Last Reflection of 2007

The New Year is almost here. Will it bring new technologies? Certainly. Will it bring new thinking? Possibly. We are all constrained by our past, by our core values, by our preferred forms of action and thought, by our culture, by .....

Occasionally we can defeat all these and come up with an original idea.

Then, we start to get older - and more set in our ways, more subject to the constraints and barriers above.

If we have a New Year's resolution, it should be to keep young, keep flexible, keep alert in our thinking. Check your daily and weekly routines and think about how much of what you do is from force of habit .... "On Tuesday evenings, we always..." Change some of these habits and you might jolt your brain back into gear!
