Getting used to being surprised

We tend to see what we’re looking for. Life is easier that way. We don’t have to think about every action we take, every word we speak. It’s part of our brain wiring.

But if we fall asleep to noticing, to being surprised, then nothing changes. We don’t uncover the possibilities of doing different, of being better.

If we’re not looking for the light switch, we’ll never turn the light on.
