The greatest skill

The greatest skill you must possess when wishing to better influence other people is the skill to see in another individual’s perspective

Only then can we truly understand what is at stake

We must empathize, we must walk in another person’s shoes, and we must not come to immediate conclusions based on our own inherently flawed and biased perspectives

All of humanity is driven by incentives

What motivates one person is different from what motivates me

How we understand the incentives of other people can direct us to better understand our relationship with another person

How we can better appreciate the people around us

Perspective is power
