Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.
I have an odd quirk. Actually, it’s more of a habit than a true quirk. When I go into a place of business, one of the first things I do is look to see what kind of phone system they have. While I try to be discreet about it, I sometimes need to peer over counters and into cubes. I do this in restaurants, hospitals, car dealerships…everywhere. And yes, I have received a number of odd looks, but I have yet to allow that to deter me.
In my latest article for No Jitter, I explore how I turn an obsession into a tool for change.
I have the same habit. This past weekend I was on a brand new US Navy ship, my son is an officer, and I was happy to see Avaya phones everywhere!
I am happy to hear that I am not alone in this!
I’m guilty of this as well, do it all the time. Being in the tech business in various capacities for the past 30 years, I also find myself always looking up in buildings, malls, just about anywhere there is an open ceiling (which is the new in-thing, they just paint everything), I always like looking at the infrastructure in buildings, conduits, cable trays, all sorts of stuff. My wife has just gotten used to me looking up all the time.
I love it! Thanks for reading and commenting.
I thought I was the only one…
I do it watching TV programmes and films as well.
Yes! You get it. 🙂
