    Recirculated from James Clear weekly 3:2:1 newsletter

    When I read this it resonated with me and I thought others might appreciate.

    Go well.

    Husband and wife combo, Benjamin Zander, a longtime conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, and Rosamund Zander, a family therapist, on the power of point of view:

    "Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear."

    Many thanks for the great thoughts Kieran - it triggered me to recall some quotes from Nobel Prize winning physicist Max Planck;

    "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

    "Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve."
