📅 Thought for today:
‘You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.’
— C S Lewis

Those words came up again, “I’m too old to be doing anything new!”
Said by someone younger than me, I feel a sense of sadness.
What does too old mean?
Yes, our bodies may not be as capable or responsive as in our youth.
And we may be forgetful or take a little longer to make decisions.
Yet surely as soon as you say, “I’m too old” you have stopped trying?
I am a fan of Carol Dweck’s book Mindset, about what makes the difference between those who fulfil their potential and those that don’t.
Dweck is an educator and looked at children, yet the principles apply to us all.
That voice in your head can be ignored you know.
