Quote of the Day – on your frame of reference

“Each of us has a lens, or frame of reference, deeply etched in us by experience and education, through which we see the world. Each of us has subconscious guidelines that govern our behaviors and decision making. We all make assumptions that may never be challenged. Success reinforces them and etches them more deeply. Business leaders who have climbed the ranks by improving margins through cost cutting of premium pricing, for instance, tend to look for that skill in the people they hire and promote,because to them, it’s what leadership success is made of. They themselves have been rewarded for such thinking through their careers. Yet, you cannot let an outdated frame of reference stop you from seeing reality.” Ram Charan
