Old keys don't open new doors.

Do all things differently; if you have the confidence; if not, build.

Thanks for the great illustrations.

Maybe one interpretation of the saying above is:

"New ideas are needed to deal with the changing times."

Well it's a nice saying but not always true...I've known some old keys that indeed can open new doors..come to China and you'll find out.

BTW, I know of two times when different keys opened the same car door and started the car...this is a fact. I had a Saturn and so did my husband, both our keys could open each car, but his key could also start my car. We told Saturn and they told us that they only had so many key patterns so this was common. Scary really when you think about it.

As for the saying...yes, I agree that new concepts are important when facing any issue that appears to need a better solution. The definition for insanity is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different result. Given that, I encourage my students to think creatively and seek new ways to see old problems.

Think outside the box.

I agree.

I encourage my sons similarly.
