Subject: Success, Motivational, Intelligence, Potential, Knowledge, Oliver Wendell Holmes


 

Victor Antonio G.

 

 


Oliver Wendell Holmes offers this piece of educational wisdom: “Man’s mind, once stretched by new ideas, never regains it original dimension.” When we allow ourselves to be exposed to new experiences or learn new things through reading, we are stretching if not transforming our way of thinking. Each hint of new knowledge contributes to the reformation of our way of thinking.

When Guttenberg developed the printing press he had no idea that it would be the catalyst that would start the Age of Enlightenment and the Age of Reason. The printing press made information available to the masses, not just the rich or the aristocracy. Information was to become democratized.

During those times to own a book was a great sign of wealth and stature. Education was prized because it was scarce or too costly to acquire.

Fast forward to this new age of technology and information and we have the exact opposite problem. We have so much information that we tend not to value it as we once did. Our greatest challenge is sorting through the information dust storm to try to get to useful information. Times have certainly changed.

But what hasn’t changed over the age is what information does for us as individuals. No matter what the subject, we have at our disposal a plethora of information. And the more we learn and are exposed to deeper or varied information on the subject the more our way of thinking is transformed. When I speak of transforming I speak of it in the positive sense. Our ability to grasp new knowledge, integrate it and apply it to our everyday circumstance for personal growth and improvement.

We are responsible, solely responsible, for our own growth. As children we didn’t know any better. As adults we cannot afford to abdicate our responsibilities to continued learning and self-development.

Self-development is about always searching or being aware of new things to learn. The process of learning only becomes arduous when we fail to enjoy the process and results.

In college I resented being given reading material. I was always reading what my professors wanted me to read. I resented that to a large extent. After graduation I began to choose the material I was interested in and I rediscovered the joy of learning. I also allowed myself to wander in the great fields of different disciplines. I studied philosophy, religion, sociology, economics, read some fiction, history and so on.

The greatest pleasure in learning is first, being able to choose whatever your range-of-the-moment interest are. The second is discovering after the fact how much you’ve learned and how it has given you a greater breadth of understanding.

And in the end, most would not disagree, that the more you know the more you realize you don’t know. As our mind expands so does our appreciation for the complexities of nature and society. We must learn to the see the complexities of simplicity (i.e., no issues are ever easy to solve without ostracizing someone) and the simplicity in the complex (i.e., if we have clear values, decisions are easier to arrive at).

Mr. Holmes was right, once the mind is stretched, it will never go back to what it once was. But I also believe the opposite to be true. If we don’t feed our minds and force it to expand, our thinking process becomes limited and in terms of understanding I fear our thinking stagnates and contracts.
