AmiSight 1/14: Our Natural Habit to Look in the Rear-View Mirror
Whenever confronted with a situation in life – whether personal or business – our natural habit is to look in our rear-view mirror for experiences. "This is Like That." And we think and plan accordingly.
You have to be careful, though - the comparison is not always valid.
I have been thinking about this habit as I watch the world respond to the Omnicron variant. Our instinct is to assume that this is just like the beginning of Covid and react accordingly. But it is different.
Always consider the situation before you, and think about the biases in whatever you are comparing it to.
