Everyone has two eyes, but no one has the same view.

When you look, do you always see the same thing?

Even with our eyes side-by-side, there is a parallax.

Just put your finger 6 inches in front of your nose and close one eye…and look at it, then close the other eye and look at it, and the finger moves, which is the correct version?

Metaphorically speaking, we find ourselves in equal territory as we watch and evaluate various components of our existing lives.

We are continually surveying the territory ahead and calculating what our best next steps might be. The reality is that we are perceptual beings, and even the disparity between our left and right eyes, can create enough of a difference, to warrant consideration.

If we apply the thought process to our lives in general, we will often discover that looking at the same circumstance in two different frames of mind, will yield two entirely different interpretations of that which we are looking at.

It is our core responsibility to enable ourselves to see our opportunities and our obstacles through the different perspectives that time, mood and circumstance can yield.

Only then, are we able to synthesize the disparity between the views that we have taken in and make appropriate choices for our appropriate steps to be taken.

Happy Tuesday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
