Every now and then I come across a metaphor that really sticks and helps me think differently about something I see every day. The metaphor helps me look at these situations with a new lens, and, as a result, think, feel, and act more effectively.
I've heard of several ways to think about our thinking. I've heard of the left-brain and right-brain. I've heard of the emotional side and the rational side. This time, the metaphor is the Elephant and the Rider.
