Be water my friend

the-artist-of-life-bruce-leeAs you can read on the about page of the blog, the name of this website is based on one of Bruce Lee’s philosophy.

When I was a kid I loved his movies. I wished I could move and fight like this guy. I was so cool.

I few moths a go I read a book about him and his philosophy of life. I really enjoyed it. He was cool and smart.

One of the most important lessons is encapsulated in his world famous quote:

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow and it can crash. Be water my friend”

What I get from this quote is that we must be adaptable.

There too many things in our lives that are out of our control. The world moves fast. Learn to re-adjust.

Nokia, the biggest cell phone company in the world did’t adjust to the new reality of smartphones and in a few was out of business.

In life and in business we need to constantly be adapting.

Be water my friend.
