i always believed tht i was better than the rest. something tht sets me apart from the crowd. maybe my mom loved me too much and made me think this, maybe no one after that was concerned enough to bring me back to my senses. nwayz i was holding on to this notion for too long and it came as a bit of a rude shock when it was broken.
Perspective. thts the art of shifting focus frm "what we see" (which is wht we do 99% of the time) to "seeing ourselves" (in the grand scheme of things). you are extremely unlucky if you possess this skill. it shows a lot of unpleasant things which you could be happily oblivious to, if only u had not stopped to ponder (or read this blog :P)
for example, a typical HR intv question - "where do u see urself 5 years down the line?" i dish out a new future for myself in every interview, and im sure u must be doin the same. but whn this comes up in ponder mode? ans dont seem so easy. The problem is not tht i dont know, rather its tht i pretty much _know_ where im goin to be. and somehow i dont like it.
i am going to be just another guy...
