Connecting the Dots Moving Forward
Dr. Bernard “Bernie” Beitman is the first psychiatrist since the legendary Carl Jung to attempt to systematize the study of coincidences and synchronicities.
Now, this may sound strange BUT stick with me here.
In Steve Jobs infamous Commencement Speech, he spoke about only connecting the dots going backwards.
You can’t connect the dots looking forwards. You can only connect them looking backwards.Steve Jobs
I politely disagree.
I believe you CAN connect the dots moving forward.
Since I’ve personal experienced it!
Where the convergence of things that you thought were seemingly unrelated, take on new meaning.
Similar to Steve Jobs taking the Calligraphy class after he dropped out.
And that turning into the famous (and well spaced) type fonts that we have today!
You CAN connect those dots moving forward using:
SYNCHRONICITIES and COINCIDENCES.
That’s why I was SO excited to hop on this podcast with Bernie and talk about the intersection of synchronicities and entrepreneurship.
