The magical mist or the ghouls?

Think No Comments

Taking some children into Cambridge early one morning. It’s a bit foggy. We turn onto Fen’s Causeway – a marshy pastureland on the banks of the river Cam, almost in the heart of the city. There is a thick mist swirling over the fields and snaking between the trees.

I think to myself “what a beatiful sight, how magical”.

From the back of the car one of the kids says to another “you’ll have to watch out for the ghouls coming to get you!”

People see the same scene differently. The emotions they trigger and the questions they raise.

So next time you have a vision for how something should be at work (a strategy, a product, a way of doing things), ask yourself what others might be seeing as you show them your ideas – the magical mist or the ghouls?
