Your Point of View
by Marty Eerhart

Have you ever been in a situation where things looked too confusing? You try real hard to get out of a certain problem situation, and no matter what (logical) solution you tend to come up with, it just doesn't seem to work.

Have you ever looked at a hologram? You look at it from a certain angle and you see one image. But them when you change your point of view, you get a complete different image.

It's amazing how we work, but by just changing our focus, we find solutions that we thought were never there.

Recently I came across the following problem that brought the "change your focus" back in perspective:

111,111,111 x 111,111,111

Go ahead and take out your calculator . . .

Would it surprise you that the answer is 12,345,678,987,654,321

What would happen if you changed your point of view?
