Cn y fll n th blnks? Referring to The Seven Deadly Sins of Solutions pulled from Matt May's The Elegant Solution the topic of our brain's ability to fill in the blanks, also referred to Blind Spots in the book, is something I had never seen so graphically presented. These blind spots include: assmptns, bses, and mndsts (r y nt t yt?) that we cannot see through or around. Apparently our "brain does a lot of “filling in” for us because it’s a pattern maker and recognizer." We are challenged to become more than our genetic makeup every day, and clear thinking May surmises, "involves more than simply filling in spaces in words."
I am guilty of almost all the "Seven Deadly Sins of Solutions." I'm not kicking myself however, because I have the ability to change, and I also have the courage to problem solve. Many professions involve problems solving including engineering, car mechanics, family counseling, real estate deal makers etc., but few people look at artists as problem solvers.
I hope this small post will get you thinkin gabou tsomethin glik ethat. Chck t ths btfl pntng by artist Rene Hein.
