Many of you have read The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell in which he discusses how a unique product, service, event, etc. becomes established within ourselves and then into an accepted norm of society. Gladwell’s second book, Blink, is described as “a book about how we think without thinking. Instantaneous choices.” It delves into many possibilities and events that shape what might be considered by many as the norm. One such subject is thin-slicing, which is described as “filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.” It is a uniquely written discussion on what counts for what and how things impact our lives without us necessarily even recognizing the fact that we have been intentionally and permanently altered.
