Often we think about who we are trying to be through the lenses of our strengths, skills, and abilities, etc…in short, what we can do or think we can do. What would happen if we instead thought about how we can best to use our time on the earth, the best ways to make positive impacts on the lives of others.
The realization that perspective matters is something we all encounter at some point, mostly as we age, what if we started today gaining perspective and sorting out what is really important to us? It’s often the case that by the time we gain perspective we have lived over half of our lives and made a mess of a few things, if we are lucky, and much worse if we are unlucky.
Perspective matters more than I realize, I am sure, but understanding that perspective matters and doing something about it is like most things in life, I suspect, if we start small and gain some confidence we will increase your likelihood of understanding that perspective matters and along the way perhaps allowing it to change your lives in the process.
