Only through continuous orientation with time and space can we learn, react, and avoid injury
Watch what our founder, Dr. Jam Ghajar, has to say about the importance of identifying and measuring how well we interact with the world around us.
Our eyes are used by the brain to perpetually synchronize with the world around us, providing continuous orientation with time and space. The byproduct of being oriented is focus, or what is more commonly known as “paying attention”. Our ability to learn, react, and avoid injury is based on the brain’s ability to maintain focus and to sustain it at a high level. When this ability is diminished, we become disoriented and the risk of injury increases.
