2-1-21 the human mind: Absence blindness

Another bug in our brains:

We are very good at noticing that are there, but we sucks at noticing the things that are not there

-          A manager that manages things without problems, whose work flow seamlessly and silently are far less noticed than managers who come every day to put down the fires they made in the first place … they appear heroes
That's one of the reasons why experienced managers are soo valuable and money-worthy … they are excellent at seeing things that are not there. They have more mental patterns that are so profound in their minds that they notice every little missing detail

The best way to overcome this is "Check-listing" … make a checklist of everything so that you don't get lost and keep things under notice
