The Three Zones of Reality
This nugget kept processing in my head from listening to this morning to a great conversation on The Knowledge Project titled – Alive Time vs. Dead Time with Robert Greene here is a summary of this idea.
“The greatest power any human can have is the power to ask questions” #
Ask questions about yourself – Why do you like what you like? This isn’t something we usually think to ask.
When we do this – “We uncover a little bit of the reality about ourselves, and the power of that is immense”
“Know thy self” #
Reality is also understanding other people #
“You can be married to someone for 30-40 years, and you might not even know them”
“The other people in your life are just projections of your own emotions”
- STOP – think about them, try not to project, try to get inside someone’s skin, and understand things from their point of view
- Then, you’ll be ever so slightly connected to their reality
- “Empathy is an immense human potential that people rarely tap into”
Reality is also about the culture we’re living in #
“If you don’t understand the times we’re living in, it’s very hard to create the book or business that taps into where people are right now”
