Eagles have the best eyesight in nature. They have two foveae or centers of focus that allow them to see both forward and to the side at the same time giving them an angle of vision of about 300 degrees. Also eagles see with a sharpness that is at least four times that of a person with perfect vision.
An eagle’s eye is sharp, discerning and impersonal. Don’t make a significant decision until you have looked at it with eagle’s eyes. You cannot afford to make significant decisions while caught in the personal view of he said/she said, emotional entanglement and agitation.
A short cut to eagle vision is to ask yourself the centering question: Will I remember this well on my deathbed?
