Continue to expand your horizons in all that you read, watch, and hear. Having a closed mind leads nowhere while being open to the strange and obscure will help you create a unique body of knowledge.
All of the dots may not connect today, but they will later. Have faith in that and explore everything you can today. This includes classic pieces of literature and philosophy—when everyone turns away and to the “new,” return to what is time-tested and settle your mind there to study. In the meantime, as you delve into new subjects and genres for all that you consume, apply what you’ve learned. Create new networks of knowledge and consider every new piece of information a friend. Never let your inner community grow stagnant and insulated.
