Following Dr. Bennett, we can have more than one worldview at a time, not simultaneously but constantly interchanging between them. In my case I have at least four as we found out, which makes me wonder how I could adapt your beautiful metaphor to myself. Any idea? Thanks! Jenny

People are notoriously poor at changing habits. Neuroscience findings make clear why: habits operate from the basal ganglia, in the unconscious part of the mind. They are automatic and most often invisible, even as they drive what we do.

Eric Vanetti's curator insight, May 9, 2013 2:45 PM

Active listening is a critical leadership skill. To become a better listener, focus on identifying the one, key point the other person is trying to communicate to you.

Would you decline a great job offer abroad because of pollution ?

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:10 AM

From the article:

 

Foreigners regularly check the air quality readings put out by the U.S. Embassy and consulates on their Twitter feeds when deciding whether to go out for a run or let their children play outside.

 

The pollution has become even more of a hot topic since January, when the readings in Beijing went off the scale and beyond what is considered hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

 

At the same time, China’s state media gave unprecedented coverage to the pollution following months of growing pressure from a Chinese middle class that has become more vocal about the quality of its air.
