We are all like pianos
Are you like me? Do you sometimes feel like the universe is talking to you? You are learning something and as of the following week, you already have the chance to put it into practice. Some things persist and some things don’t. For me, it was the concept of frequency.
I have experienced it while learning new vocabulary. And I’ve noticed that new theories in one field can inspire us in another. They allow us to gain new points of view, which sometimes help us to go further.
Personally, I love it when I’m able to draw a parallel between different universes. I know the parallel is limited and certainly not to be taken as absolute, but they often help to visualize. It is also important to constantly edit and test them to understand when it is the best time to use them. Over the years, there are some theories of physics with which I have managed to make connections with our interactions with others.
When will you be able to use the concept of frequency?
I often use it when:
- I feel in a strange state and I don’t understand the logic. Logic is important to understand and without them it is very difficult to move forward.
- I cannot understand someone’s behaviour.
- I want to get the right message to the right person.
- I can no longer find solutions to a problem
Physical phenomena to develop some vocabulary
Time is an amazing. Its provide extra point of view for everything. The science of wave physics is using a lot time in their equation to explain phenomena. It has a great vocabulary, highly useful to understand. The most important one is
I’ve already talked to you about wavelengths and speed. In this article, I’ll talk specifically about frequency.
We Are Pianos
We’re all pianos. In fact, every note on our piano is an element in our lives that makes us vibrate. Given that many things in our lives stimulate us, we all have a piano with several notes.
What is a frequency for us?
A frequency in a piano it a specific note. The create parallel, a note would be passions, expertise, knowledge, … For example
- Play music
- Read history books
- Getting to the gym
- Learning new languages
- Management expertise
- Expertise as a firefighter, police officer, nurse…
The more expertise you have, the more precise the level of detail in the notes.
You like to play music and play some guitar for a few years. You have not yet learned to read or write music. The level of expertise and precision in your notes/frequencies will be much less developed than a conductor who dedicated his life to music.
Level of Detail in Frequency Concept
You’re watching a figure skating competition at the Olympics. Wow, they’re beautiful and good skaters, but heck I wouldn’t want to be a judge. No idea of the small detail that makes one movement more difficult and better executed than another. And yet judges are often very stable in their judgments. And why? It’s that they can distinguish details that I can’t discern. My expertise being limited, my piano will have fewer notes in the same frequency range of the piano.
How do we add frequencies, notes to our piano?
More energy is required to listen to a note we don’t have, compared to a note we have. The reason is simple. When we don’t have a note/frequency to our piano, it’s because we didn’t learn it yet.
For example, your friend is an expert in physics and you haven’t done as much training or reading as he did on the subject. Listening to him for long hours will require more concentration than if you talked about your favourite band.
The worst situation to consume energy is to talk about a subject or do things in an area of no interest to you. In this case, listening to the person or doing a total new activity of no interest is like adding a new section to our piano you didn’t plan on doing. It is certainly not always easy, but it is possible if the energy is there you could do it.
To increase the level of precision, the level of detail, it also requires energy. As we have to learn and look for nuances. Switching from novice to expert requires effort.
So how do you add frequencies/notes to our piano:
- You have to do different things,
- talk to different people,
- experience unusual situations.
- You have to move and try things.
How to optimize your energy?
To have more energy and continually progress, nothing better than to balance the time. I created a time distribution guide for this very reason. See below to request your guide.
How to use this frequency concept immediately?
This week, there is a good chance that you will notice this concept of frequency in your life. Either by :
- Feeling the energy requirement when you learn something
- Acknowledging you are not an expert and more notes are available to you
- appreciating a person piano range
Next time you feel unconfortable be aware of the concept of frequency. Ask yourself those questions :
Is the level of detail not aligned? The person is an expert and you cannot follow it.
Is this the type of conversation, the topic is not interesting or the activity is not interesting or easy?
In the first case, let the person know that the level of detail is too high and you cannot keep up and contribute. If you have the energy, take the time to better understand the area. You’ll be surprised, next time will definitely be smoother.
In the second case, if you have the energy to ask questions, try to broaden your horizons. If you feel you don’t have the energy, change the subject subtly.
The Concept of Frequency Is Very Useful in a Networking setting
Have you ever been to networking events? Are you like me and feel like most people are having fun except you? You always seem to have discussions that end quickly.
In fact, we almost all feel that way. Everyone comes with different objectives. We’re not all on the same frequency.
Now that we know the concept of frequency, we understand that it is more difficult to have long conversations when the frequencies are not aligned. Instead of thinking you’re not interesting, just say to yourself you haven’t found the common frequency.
When you start a not relationship or discussion find a frequency to share
What to do next ?
Identify events where frequency is not aligned. And identify what it does to you to know it’s only a matter of frequency.
Share your experiences below in the comments, I am curious to hear from you and know if this new vocabulary helps you.
