We don't have to come up with all the ideas and solutions on our own. Way before we started thinking about ways of troubleshooting in our lives our ancestors already found their own ways of dealing with things. Just because an idea is old doesn't mean it's outdated... So for today, let us be inspired by the wisdom of those who walked the earth before us. Their ideas have had time to mature and like in the old saying 'the older the cave, the sweeter the wine' those have become sweet and well-rounded like an aged wine.
Don't just read the future; help create it!
