Plus Magazine tells us that the price of oil could be related to the Australian Cricket Team’s results.

It’s an interesting graph. Obviously, we know that the relation is nothing more than coincidence. But looking at the graph alone, it could be interpreted in many ways.

Just goes to show, if you look deep enough, there are connections to be found anywhere. Two implications of this. Firstly, don’t believe anything you see or read. Secondly, and more importantly in my opinion, it raises the question – are you finding the right connections and interpreting them in the right way?

There are lessons you can learn from anything around you. Practically anything you see can be connected to something else and learned from. It’s just a matter of how deep you look.

Are you making the right connections?
