life has been goodPosted: 2007/09/13
i’ve never been so active in my life. basketball, volleyball/beach volleyball, weight training, running spread out throughout the entire week… and i am loving it!
trying to get some ventures up and running here in the bay area and newport beach so i can live back in nyc for a year or so. i will have to wait and see then. all i can do is release them.
we have different ways on how we see things. it could be due to our upbringing or the environment. nevertheless, we cannot truly say that one or the other is absolutely right or wrong.
a harvard business professor asked half of his class to take a glimpse of a young woman’s picture for 10 seconds. the other half was asked to take a look at the picture of an elderly woman. the professor then showed this picture below to the class and both had different points of view just from a ten-second impression of what they saw before.
the students who saw the young woman had a more positive look at the picture. they’d like to take her out, the women would like to be her friend, and the others would recommend her to a modeling agency. the other group who saw an elderly woman thought otherwise.
according to stephen covey, if ten seconds could change the way we look at things, what more could a lifetime of social upbringing or the environment bring forth to our perceptions? nonetheless, this is where we have to look at where the person is coming from so we can fully understand them better instead of arguing with them.
we are looking at the same picture/experience/value/principle but the way we perceive it commensurately lies on how we see the world as it is. and all of us will always have different points of view on some experiences.
so i forgive everyone tonight. my bad 🙂
