Clearing the Cache…

Today I had an experience of working on my new website.  Someone sent me new information to view via a link to the internet. I had used the same link in the past.  What I didn’t know is that internet explorer keeps a cache of information that I have used in the past, so instead of bringing up the new, it gave me the old information as a reference. In order to see the new information, I had to hit the f5 key to clear internet explorers past cache.

Our brains work almost the same way.  We keep past information in order to reference new experiences. Sometimes, past history gets in the way of seeing new opportunities and a new perception.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could simply hit the f5 button in our brains and clear out the old cache?
