Discussion What significance does our paradigm have on our behaviour? How does the prior knowledge we have of a child effect the way we behave with that child and the way they behave with us?
Thoughts become actions A man found an eagles egg and put it in the nest of a barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brute of chicks and grew up with them. All his life the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects, he clucked and cackled and thrashed his wings and would fly a few feet into the air. Years passed by and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents. The old eagle looked up in awe ‘who is that?’ he asked. ‘That’s the eagle, the king of the birds’ said his neighbour, ‘he belongs to the sky we belong to the earth, because we are chickens’. So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.
If you want to make minor improvements, work on behavior and attitudes. If you want to make quantum improvements, work on paradigms. A paradigm is like a mental model, an assumption, or a map. Every great breakthrough is a break WITH. “All people see the world, not as it is, but as they are” - Covey

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don’t much care where," said Alice. "I don’t much care where," said Alice.
