Most everything I’ve done I’ve copied from somebody else.
– Sam Walton
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new.
Ecclesiastes 10:9-10 NLT
I was once told my life time is too short to make every mistake there is to make, so I better learn from the mistakes of others and try my best to make new ones. It’s something I’ve taken to heart and applied myself to. I want to be smart enough to be teachable. I want to learn all that I can from those who have gone before me. I want to stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before me to do something new in my generation.
