The Paradox of Perspective

"Waterfall," M.C. Escher

"Waterfall," M.C. Escher

You may be correct, but don’t take it for granted that the other person is wrong. More often than not, if you will take the time to listen – to see from an angle not your own –  you will come to understand their perspective, even if in the end you won’t agree. Until you know another’s motive, your own motive in judging can be nothing more than self-indulgence. And if that’s the case, chances are your own perspective is from the wrong angle to begin with.
