A distinction is a new way of looking at the world. Really new.
It is also like a framework, like a whole punched into a solid wall… when you look through that hole, what you see is unfamiliar.
You can look at the world and suddenly that distinction starts to show up everywhere.
I was talking about the fixed mindset just now, in the article just published, and suddenly, all these pictures are telling the same story, wholly or partially… something I would never would have guessed without actually looking through the distinction: the hole punched in the wall.
here you go:
Is it easy to see? If you have the distinction, hell yeah. If you don’t have the distinction, hell no.
If I have failed at anything in life, being able to teach distinctions is what I have failed at. And this doesn’t mean I won’t die trying… but I have stopped expecting it.
In my 3-day test, turning on the “see the forest for the trees” I felt inept, helpless, as the results were coming in… at best partial results.
The capacity of seeing is practically non-existent in our current culture… Sigh
