Ever felt like you should be doing better but you can’t see what’s holding you back?

Some people say that seeing is believing, and there are those who say believing is seeing.

It is true that sometimes we can’t see something and we must rely on faith…

Not with your foot traffic conversion rate. This is actually something you can see, track and improve. It may be the single most valuable thing you can do to improve your business.

But maybe you are choosing not to see. Or your eyes are playing tricks on you.

Take the image below, what do you see, an old woman, a young woman, or both?

The answer is both. Can you see them?

This optical illusion first appeared on an 1888 German postcard and was later adapted by British cartoonist William Ely Hill, who published it in a humor magazine in 1915 with the title “My Wife and My Mother-in-Law.”

Contrary to what we intuitively believe, information may not actually correspond to reality. Just like when you can’t see what is happening with every shopper that enters your store, your brain may compensate and introduce abstract parameters that lead to bad business decisions and lost sales opportunities.

So, what if you just can’t see what you need to see? Can you do anything about it?
