When was the last time you shook up the thinking at your office? If it’s been too long, then maybe it’s time to start thinking the unthinkable, seeing what nobody else can see, and breaking a few rules. We are all creatures of habit, and it usually takes a jolt to shake us out of our rut. I know – I wrote a book on the subject.
But climbing outside the rut is exactly where we need to be. So start tomorrow. Think of the projects you’re facing at work, and then think of the most outrageous solution. For once, just forget about budget, schedule, and rules. Just start asking, “What’s the most elegant and perfect solution?” Reframe the problem in a new light and see what insight comes from there.
And just for fun, see how many minds you can blow in the process.
