Have you noticed how some people seem to fail and others seem to be very, very successful at what they do?
The thing is, this isn’t by accident.
They look at the world differently and one of the key things that they look at differently is the perception of “scale”.
Scale on a Whole New Level
In the video below by Brian Greene, the famous theoretical physicist & string theorist he discusses an import factor when looking at the world around you.
We understand that most humans are several feet tall, that planes go fast and we walk quite slow from our “day to day” activities.
We only have one perspective of scale, we’re in the middle if you like. However, these are just a small fraction of the possibilities.
Press play on the video below, it’s only a few minutes long:
This starkly wakes us up to realise that scale is much more than what we see day to day, it can be as small as an atom or as large as a universe.
“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
Other people focus on what they see day to day and others… well they want to ding the universe.
I know which one I’d rather do, you?
