I was Skyping with a friend the other day, and by way of saying goodbye, I said, “Well, I’m off to go take a nap.”
“So am I!” he replied.
“Great minds think alike,” I said, almost instinctively.
But I’ve always hated that phrase. I don’t think anything could be further from the truth. If great minds thought alike, this would be a very generic, lackluster world. I wouldn’t want to live in it.
If great minds thought alike, there would be no innovation. There would be no experimentation. There would be no reason to broaden one’s horizons.
If anything, great minds think differently. They challenge the norms. They improve upon our world. By thinking outside the box, they break us free of our cages.
As if to prove my point, my friend offered up this retort: “Fools seldom differ.”
And then we went our separate ways, both to take naps in different parts of the world.
