If the Shoe Fits: You and Subjectivity

by Miki Saxon

A Friday series exploring Startups and the people who make them go. Read all If the Shoe Fits posts here

5726760809_bf0bf0f558_mIn 1739 the Scottish skeptic David Hume wrote “Treatise of Human Nature” in which he argued that the only difference between a virtue and a vice is the impression it makes, i.e., the subjective way it is perceived and internalized.

Subjective vision is the norm, possibly even more so now than in the past, which means you need to constantly be on the alert for how your words and actions are perceived by your team.

People are an amalgamation of their upbringing, education and, especially, their experiences, so no two are exactly the same.

As a result, each perceives what comes their way differently.

It is your responsibility to keep everyone not just on the same page, but on the same line.
