Don’t use the first image in Google to put into your card

Today I learn this word: peripathetic

traveling especially on foot; of or relating to Aristotle or his philosophy

This is the image appears in the card:

Well, a walking person, sounds good. But does it strongly show the philosophy meaning, the one that makes peripathetic has its own market to use, the one that makes it a complement of walking? For me, no.

So I scan my brain to find a memory which relates to the word. And luckily, I found The One-Week Job Project:

The One-Week Job Project was created in 2008 by Canadian resident and recent university graduate, Sean Aiken, who struggled to answer the question, “What should I do with my life?” Determined to discover his passion, he embarked on an epic journey throughout North America. His goal: work 52 jobs in 52 weeks to find his passion.

with this picture in its website:

A lot better.

So, putting an image to your card is great, but making it specific, related to your memory and life experience, is a lot better. Don’t use the first image you get, because it is so generic.
