The Art of Possibility

I am currently reading “The Art of Possibility”  by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander via Adobe Digital Editions. The first statement that really caught my attention in the book “the Art of Possibility” was how they stated that markets are becoming the authority in society, not government or religion.  I can see this statement in action today.

We perceive what we are hard wired to perceive.  Out experiences in life may alter this hardwiring.  Our minds try to build a narrative out of the stimuli that they receive.  In our dreams we can piece together unconnected events to make these stories. In sleep we do not have logic to control these little story lines that we concoct.  Our perception in invented from our brain.

 

I tried the 9 dots puzzle in which we were instructed to connect all the dots using only 4 lines, without  picking up the pen from the sheets of paper. I failed miserably.

This was a great analogy for me.  It was a non cliché way to make the cliché statement of “think outside the box”. I was thinking in the box and did not even realize that there was a box holding me in.

I too believe that are experience and our history “wire” us into a frame of mind and then the measurements continually are like chains linking us in place-almost creating a static life-one with limited possibilities that are hindered by fears and background inhibitions.  I think that because we are teaching in environments that tend to be linear based and definitely measure based, that we find our own inventions are limited and stoically planned.  I believe that Zanders’ motivational techniques inspire us to realize that we are all wired to be “outside of the box.”  Did you ever complete the task once you realized that it was okay to move beyond?
