Sitting on my desk looking outside through a dirty window got me thinking. What kind of person I might be, what have I focused on first, the pretty view or the dirty window. How or what does that say about me as a person, father, professional. Do I focus on what I can’t do and why, or am I the type of person who sees the problem but a solution as well? When I see my son struggling in a Math problem, do I focus on his struggle, or his determination to be a Math teacher? When I have my camera out on a shoot, and I arrive to a not so desirable situation… What’s my approach, what perspective of things do I choose to see?
I believe we all see the same things but what truly matters and makes us different is what and how we choose to see them.
