People see things differently when they are an expert.

A masterful knitter can tell at a glance when a line of stitches is off. A professional carpenter can tell from across the room whether a row of cabinets will fit in the kitchen or not. A major league baseball player can judge the trajectory of a ball far better than a little leaguer. I can tell from looking at a pile of items whether or not it will fit into a suitcase or the car. I can see potential blogs where others are just going about their business without noticing the lesson or impact.

Everyone has an area where they have super-vision to see things in ways a novice can’t. Think about the part of the world that you see where others do not. How can you use this to your advantage?
