Read today, change your thinking forever!
Beyond the Blindfold readers have asked for real life examples of how the power of context can be applied. That’s why I’ve created the Twisted Lens video and essay series, to delve into hot and controversial topics of the day.
Beyond the Blindfold is a must-read collection of essays from successful entrepreneur Vince Taylor that asks us to do just that. Through 52 highly engaging parables, Taylor shares the importance of reflecting on our actions and beliefs throughout adulthood.
Written over ten years of reflection, this book shares Taylor’s own follies and mistakes alongside moments of growth and success. The result? Beyond the Blindfold provides down-to-earth insights into key principles often bypassed in the 21st century.
Topics include balancing work success with the warmth of home (in a chapter titled, “Emptying the Bucket”); the techniques of not judging others (“Lessons from the Dog Park”); how to handle—and not be consumed by—success (“One Mask, Two Faces); and becoming compelling to your audience, whether a team, a client or a party (“The Long and Short of Great Communication”), amongst others.
Above all, readers of Beyond the Blindfold will understand more about harnessing the power of context throughout life milestones, even during tumultuous times. We can all live fuller, happier, more successful lives—all by acknowledging the lens through which we see the world.
Keep this book on the bedside table, on the coffee table, in your glove compartment. Delve into these ideas time and again, when you need a pick-me-up or the advice of a wise friend.
