Transformation is an interesting phenomenon. In transformation what seems to change is what we perceive, not us.An example of a transformation caused by a simple sentence.You are in your office that is equipped with vertical blinds on the windows. You are sitting at your desk, staring at the vertical blind, and feel caged in, cut off from the world. You have no idea what the weather is like, you don’t know if it is sunny or rainy. You are miserable.Someone suggests that you step on step to the left. And suddenly, between the slats of the blinds, you can see clear blue sky with tiny white clouds and you rejoice.The shutoff feeling is gone, and you are restored to happiness.This is transformation. You identified the cause of your distress and made a tiny move to see something different.Another transformational move is framing.Same office, same blinds, same gloomy caged move. You are thinking of your life, and how it is screwed up. But suddenly someone comes in, and has a conversation with you about the significance of your contribution to the world-changing project you’ve been working on.Your mood suddenly changes. Who cares about the weather: we are changing the world!As you see, transformation is not permanent, it is created, and then it will fizzle out. But while it is active, you can alter your life, not screw up your life, move ahead… etc. Just act fast. Transformation is like the elevator door: you hesitate and it leaves you where you are.
