Do you get confused between “look,” “see, ” and “view”?

These three verbs can be confusing.

They mean similar things but they are used in different, very specific ways.

Today we want to start with a great quote:

“The only way to assure long term comfort is to create continuous, short-term moments of discomfort.”

-Tim Ferris

You should set up situations in your daily life that are a little bit uncomfortable so that you can stretch your limits and boundaries and open your life up to new opportunities.

How can you do this:

Look at your goals.

See what you can reach for.

View every day as a new way to create discomfort and create a satisfying life.

What’s the difference between look/see/view:

  • Look: When you actively move your head and try to point your eyes in a specific direction.
  • See: This is more passive. I might see someone go by but I am not going to actively try to look at the person
  • View: More formal and can be used to talk about a movie or a show or an event. There are also a lot of related phrases and other ways to use this verb such as:
    • To come into view: To be able to see something
    •  A viewing: An event where you have a chance to see a home that is for sale, something is on display
    • The view: The scenery
    • In my view: In my opinion, the way I see it
    • My point of view
