I’m now of an age where I have seen my contemporaries grow, develop and take on the world in larger or smaller slices. Some have even retired, others have switched what they do to give themselves more interesting lives.
What has struck me over the years is their conversations. With me, with the world, verbal and written.
It’s a little difficult to give words to (maybe purely my own limitations) but some people seem able to ‘think big’, not grandiose ideas, but able to encompass complex systems and requirements and influences. Others seem stuck in looking at the world and talking to and about it in extremely limited ways.
I wonder do we all have the capacity, or is there an innate limit to everyone’s thinking and some stop early, or is it just a laziness, a disinclination. Or maybe it is also limited by what we are faced with, how we tackle the first things may set patterns that later limit us.
Off now to face some people, see how confined their thinking is. Limited to their little worlds they are going to give me headaches this week. Open for more that will make the whole week a success.
Hold thumbs for me.
