Live Consultant Thinking: Looking at Honest, Confidence and Integrity
At small business seminars and in one to one conversations, we often talk about seeing the big picture. It is important to business owners and their managers that everyone see the big picture, to better understand the business goals. I think it is equally important to question the big picture, to question and study what we are seeing.
We talk about things like honesty, respect, confidence and integrity. You and I are enough alike. Yet, with our individual minds, we see nothing precisely the same.
The object or problem we are both looking at is indifferent to us, and in constant sameness. You and I looking at it, studying the same thing, are not seeing the same thing. It may be similar, but I can not see what you see. And even as we are in agreement, both looking at the same big picture, you do not see what I see. Do you see what I am talking about?
Looking and seeing are not the same, as in radio, transmission and reception are not the same. While radio transmits from one point, and is received at a different point, our mind is the point of both transmission and reception. Looking is a mind activity going out. Seeing is that mind activity returning.
Each of us has an individual mind, rather than all of us having a common mind.
We can open our minds and heart to explore why different people see different things differently, the same as you and me.
We have uncommon minds.
