When you are present, and you let the world in, you can see it accurately. When you see things accurately, you can appreciate their richness and potential. This is the point where truly beneficial innovation becomes possible.
Innovation as Being Present

I do not disagree with this point however, in a broader sense, I find myself often questioning the notion of seeing things “accurately”, as that implies a stable universal reality that just needs to be apprehended. Now, I agree there are more effective and less effective ways to see things but, as I see it anyway, perspective is more about which shared construction we wish to align ourselves with. And since each construction exists as part of an extensive network of other constructions, some constructions have more points of congruence than others. (Forgive me if I’m getting too derivative…). So those with more points of congruence tend to be considered the more “accurate”.
