90% of errors in thinking are errors of perception rather than of analysis. We are all victims of the classic problem of climbing a ladder with several rungs missing. Most of us have a narrow and fixed view of the world. We see things only from our own perspective. This tunnel vision results in judgments and decisions that may not be the best for ourselves or those around us. Power of PerceptionTM provides you with 10 tools to broaden your thinking. These tools provide insights to help you make better decisions.
