PG's 2 Cents: What You See Is Different From What I See, Is That OK?

By Peter Garety - August 31, 2022

Sometimes it's very hard not to get furious when someone doesn't see things the same way I do. Am I alone, or is this something you experience as well? 

I know it's normal because it makes us humans. 

Also, the only reason why opportunities exist and why we can achieve great things in life is exactly because we see things differently.

Sometimes the best opportunities in life are hidden in different perspectives. I mean, that's how taxis became Uber, hotels became AirBnB, and MySpace became Facebook. 

But I find it really difficult in my personal life. 

For example, when I see someone close to me not doing the things that could move him ahead in life, it makes me frustrated and even angry. I think, "why are you complaining and not taking this action and that action. You could achieve so much".

But they don't see it that way. They see it differently, and it's hard for me to accept it. 

The good news is that it's getting better thanks to the book I read years ago called Ego Is The Enemy by Ryan Holiday. 

This year I got this coin from his shop

I carry it with me daily as a reminder that I need to keep my EGO in check no matter what.

So I'm making progress, but it's certainly not easy.

Just my two cents,

Peter
