If you can only see the present state and not the future, you miss the potential. – ME
I took a plain photograph and showed it someone who looked at it in its’ present state. “Pretty much a dull picture” he responded.
I then took that photograph and twisted it and made a mirror image of it. I printed it off and had it on my wall. The same person saw it and was in awe of how cool the photograph looked. I looked at him and said “You said it was pretty much a dull picture last time you looked at it.”
