Each of us is what we have allowed the world to create us to be. Consider your experiences and the cumulative influences upon you throughout your lifetime. Your interactions with family, friends, teachers, and even strangers or enemies, combined with your feelings and thoughts concerning these experiences, have formed you into the person you are today. From Computer Science, we know that interactions and experiential data form the training sets for deep learning neural networks. But in real life, they simply make us who we are.
Perspective is about ownership and opportunity. Through perspective, we learn how to view the world the way that we choose to view it, and in doing so, gain greater influence over our environment, our well-being, and ourselves. Having perspective makes us fundamentally different than computers, which are limited by their lack of it. Once we are able to regularly tap into such awareness, the second step involves leveraging time as a variable and strategic tool in considering thoughts and options to yield varying perspectives.
Up until now, we have been expected to learn most of the science regarding human interactions outside of traditional education, and often by trial and error. Now, Perspective Science™ provides an educational framework that introduces and reinforces the concepts of how the brain works, how we think, how we feel, how we influence others, and how others influence each of us. Perspective Science allows us to learn and practice difficult concepts and skills as we have done with math, language, and the traditional sciences, as part of a structured, factual based educational process occurring and reinforced over time.
Learning Perspective Science is critically important for increasing individual personal and professional effectiveness, including the proverbial leadership skills. The study of perspective will enable you to identify, understand, and gain power over the factors that influence success and the achievement of goals, while bringing you the benefits that come from a more appreciative and profound understanding of yourself and others.
