Learned and Enlightened

"To become learned each day add something. To become enlightened, each day drop something." Lao Tzu

It's possible to be an "idea" hoarder. We only have time for a sliver of the awesome in the world. Trying to hold on to it all requires far more than most mortals are capable of.

The thing we drop today, if it's really that important, we'll find it again. And likely, when we find it, we'll be more prepared than we are now to learn the lesson it has to teach.
