“The gift of a beginner is fresh eyes.
“The longer you’re in a field, the harder it is to perceive new truths. Your mind is biased toward refining what you’re already doing instead of exploring fresh terrain.
“Take your expertise and apply it to something new.”
– James Clear
Clear is the author of “Atomic Habits,” a book I highly recommend. I wonder whether he knows he’s talking about what Seung Sahn called “don’t know” mind – that state of remaining teachable.
Either way, that advice is Zen AF.
