Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #37: Pay Attention to Overall Patterns, and the Anomalies That Do Not Fit.
Life largely consists of patterns and anomalies. The patterns are the general structures, the things you expect to see because you’ve seen them happen so many times before. In fact, our brains often naturally pick up general patterns and tendencies. Once you know what to expect quite well, you will be prepared to notice anomalies. The things or events that don’t fit with the context. Often, by realizing that there is an anomaly present, we can further investigate it. Darwin realized on his voyage studying other life forms that there were many minor variations among different species of birds. This was inconsistent with his prior worldview that we were all fixed species that never changed form. He took that anomaly and investigated it further, founding the theory of evolution.
Geniuses learn the patterns, the tendencies of a system, and if they come across an anomaly they do not discard it. They focus on it until they understand why it happened. Often times it is the unexpected anomaly that leads to a great breakthrough of a discovery.
