Big Pictures

BigPicture small words.
Perspective is more important than IQ.
The tree has a disease. You are the smartest person in the world. You are two inches away from the bark of the tree and trying to figure out what is wrong. All you see is bark. Nothing seems wrong. In fact, nothing is wrong—with  the bark. Step back and you see the leaves of the tree. You can see they are brown and falling off. Step back further and you can see the forest. Further back and the ecosystem and watershed is now in view. Go even further back and you can see the energy source for the tree— the sun. With the bigger picture comes the additional parts of the puzzle, the context and the outside the original view causes. As Dwight Eisenhower said, “If you can’t solve a problem, enlarge it.” If something doesn’t make sense, you can’t understand something, step back and see the larger system the system you are trying to understand (or change) fits into.
