Pause

Seeing the World Accurately

What do we know today that we didn’t understand yesterday? What have we learned? How have we learned it? Could this process be applied elsewhere in politics, in business, in our lives?

We all have those moments when we think, “if I had only known then what I know now.” But, is this really possible? Can we be prematurely smarter, more insightful, even wiser? I think so, at least sometimes.

A product commercial used to advertise “the pause that refreshes.” Well, take it further. How about the pause that lets us think before we act. The pause that lets us see what we were missing. The pause that lets us see the world more accurately. 20/20 foresight, instead of 20/20 hindsight.

The pause. Try it. It works.
