Particularly often incur departures from reality that impair the profitability of our effort to make money.
There are thousands of ways to depart from reality, but I'll only three of them:
1) Assume that humans should be better. Moreover, we should not be like us, ie, mean, liars, lazy, mediocre, unscrupulous.
The urgency to achieve that goal can separate binding of reality to believe that it is time to treat everyone with the assumption that is as it should be, expecting others to assume those qualities required.
In this case, the departure from reality makes us very demanding people, harsh, hypercritical, which, surely, we are not treating others as they are, making sure that our communication will never get the true recipient.
2) It also takes us away from reality nostalgia, cling to the past, to old procedures, although they have become obsolete. There is no responsibility for failure to learn, much less use new technologies.
Resistance to change is not capricious. Those who are reluctant to explore innovations do not by simple oppositional: it is a disability objective to assimilate something different than what was already known.
Imagine a home where the furniture is as hard and immovable as the walls. Surely it will not be possible to renew the furniture because there will be no place for a new table, another bed, modern seats. It is not that someone foolishly cling to the past but can not get rid of him.
Some of this happens to those who resist change: objectively can not.
3) A third way to get away from reality is abuse of hope that have not yet occurred.
