Quote on tunnel vision

“A tribesman was transported from a remote mountain wilderness (a society that had not yet discovered the wheel) to a large city. When he returned, he reported that the most significant thing he saw was somebody using a wheelbarrow to carry more bananas than he ever thought possible. He literally did not see the significance of automobiles and skyscrapers. He was not prepared to see them.”

By Arie de Gaus as stated by Peter Schwartz in Art of Long View, p.g. 33.

Good to keep this in mind when dealing with the adoption of new ideas or a new way of working.
