My friend send me following email about lateral learning, found it quite interesting -
Many years ago in a small Indian village,
A farmer had the misfortune Of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender.
The Moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer’s beautiful Daughter. So he proposed a bargain.
He said he would forgo the farmer’s debt if he could marry his Daughter. Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the Proposal.
So the cunning money-lender suggested that they let Providence decide the matter.
He told them that he would put a black Pebble and a white pebble into an empty money bag. Then the girl would Have to pick one pebble from the bag.
1) If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven.
2) If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven.
3) But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into Jail.
They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer’s field. As They talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he Picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two Black pebbles and put them into the bag.
“Ideas makes me pregnant”
In my last post i wrote about almost9months.com where Aji is delivering all his ideas as being almost 9 months is useless unless you deliver it.
Ideas are very volatile in nature, sometimes we keep on thinking and it won’t come down no matter how hard we try and sometimes it just clicks our mind even we are not thinking about it, then it just woooooooosh goes away and we keeps on thinking what was it, the thing is before delivering our ideas we need to collect it.
for that best thing is to “carry a small notebook (or whatever capture tool works for you) and write down any tasks, ideas, projects, or other information that pop into your head. Get it out of your head and onto paper, so you don’t forget it. – ZTD Habit 1”
It’s quite helpful cause many times what happens i get out of topics for writing post in my dot net blog but as I started writing all the ideas that i can blog, i never got out of topic stocks, in my 1st exercise of this capturing ideas i wrote 26 different topics that i wanted to or can blog about and before that i used to think i’m out of ideas to blog.
I am pregnant again! been pregnant many times in last few years. Now its time that I start delivering too. Being pregnant and being almost 9 months is useless unless you deliver. – Aji Issac @ almost9months.com
This is great, cause i’ve been thinking how to use this dot com site cause i’m using my dot net site just fine started earning hundred of dollars, so how to make good use of this new dot com just because I love dot com over dot net don’t make any sense. then came across almost9months.com started by one of my favorite blogger Aji.
It’s all about “How to make use of your innovative mind? Don’t let your ideas die, make it work or donate it for free. Recently while thinking over it, I have decided to make some of the ideas float free. – Aji “
