Cuidado com a experiência

Interessante poesia do grande James March:

"The Jungles of Novelty

Someone who consistently sticks to old ideas

Will ultimately become obsolescent,

But in the meantime will almost always do better

Than someone who insists on embracing new ones.

Old ideas have been tested and refined,

And we have grown competent in them.

So, trying something different

Is usually unrewarding.

Of course, since the world is changing,

Old ideas grow stale and fresh new ones

Become necessary if we are to survive for long.

So we look hopefully for creative new ideas

To replace the old tired one we have already.

But when we do that, we discover once again

How hard it is to find good ideas

In the jungles of novelty."
