|A bird’s eye view of a pigeon|
There’s a lot to be learned from a Bird’s eyes and how it views the world around it. Usually, we tend to bogged down or come to halt, when we look at things very minutely. We get so engrossed in tiny details that we fail to see the big picture. Although not always but most of the times, the future repercussions of your actions, words or decisions can be far-reaching.
As humans, we have to learn to look at typical situations in life from a bird’s eye view perspective. Imagine, you being a bird and looking at the world beneath you from a height of 100, 200 or say, 1000 meters in the sky. It gives you a broad view of the happenings around the city. The flight of the bird was the inspiration behind the Wright brothers inventing the first aeroplane. This is the key to success. In our day-to-day lives, we have to constantly look at things, first at macroscopic level, then moving to microscopic. And, so, this process needs to be repeated to ensure you capture all the details.
As Antonio Porchia rightly said,
“I am chained to the earth to pay for the freedom of my eyes.”
