Subliminal listening (we don’t always know what we hear…)

I love this story of how the subconscious moves in mysterious ways.

I sometimes sleep with the radio on but had not realised until the other night how much subliminal listening was happening. At about 2am on Tuesday 6th March, rather jetlagged from my flight to the UK the previous day, I was suddenly wide awake wondering who was speaking such good sense. It didn’t take long to realise it was Russ Ackoff being interviewed by Peter Day of the Business Programme on the BBC World Service. See more of what Russ has to say including his article ‘Why few organizations adopt systems thinking’.

Story from Ray Ison’s blog (posted Sunday March 18th 2007).

The way our minds work must be like an iceberg: most of the impressions and senses that we imbibe on a daily basis lie under the surface of our conscious awareness, and amount to something mighty.
