A Straight Line

I think we all would agree the picture on the right is a fairly straight line. It is taken from a local major street.

Many of us, myself included, often do not take the time to consider the possibility of other perspectives or angles.

Now look at the picture below. It’s actually a picture of the same line on the street, but because of a dip in the road it creates a brand new perspective.

Keep this in mind as you meet with people, have confrontations and arguments or even find yourself at an impasse. So often what we bring to that moment is our driving force and it may be tainted. Is there another perspective that deserves your consideration?

Keep your mind open to other possibilities.

“We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
