Life & Philosophy

In search of novelty

Everything is exciting in the beginning. But maintaining the ‘beginner’s mind’ is a Herculean task.

Disinterest arises with routine, which fires the same tedious neural pathways again and again.

Unless we can reframe the problem, stuckness can be both frustrating and annoying.

We crave new challenges.

Novelty blends both excitement and anticipation, determinants in the pursuit.

Always on, always learning — we plant the seeds of progress while taking the long view toward growth.
