A distinction is the perceived difference between two things previously thought of as the same. All learning is based on discovering useful distinctions.

One of the ways we trip ourselves up in life is by correlating desparate concepts in nonsensical ways. We apply things that worked for us in one area of our lives to areas where they don’t serve us well. We also flip the scenario and create fissures between two things that shouldn’t really be separate. But there is always spillover, and that affects business.

Keywords: Distinction, learning, workability
