See or Look?

Two people will look at the same thing and then come to see something quite different than the other. The same is likely true for the third and the fourth person to have looked at it.

From individual perspectives, we process a thing we have looked at to form our own unique thoughts for our own use. To have looked at something once and form a thought of it forever is of little value. What we are looking at won’t change, but what we truly see and take away for a learning experience can change us for the better.

Look to see something each day as if it were the first time, even though you may have looked a hundred times before. There is more to be learned through each experience if you purposefully aim to see it again and again. Applied learning is a continuous thing leading to enhanced wisdom. From what I see today compared with what I looked at years ago will have changed.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” — Henry David Thoreau —
