Our view of a building, a plant, a person, a business, or a problem, can change drastically by circling around, backing up, zooming in, looking from behind, side, or top. The same is true of problems.
In business and in life, how often do we come up against the same problem more than once? Or we cannot get a solution to a long standing problem? And yet we see others move through the same obstacles almost effortlessly; we need a new perspective, we need to see what they see, we need to step back and look at it from a different angle or a different viewpoint. How can we finally see what we are missing? How can we see the dead thing ruining what is thriving? How can we see the neglected area that needs love and attention?
By getting (or changing) our perspective!
They say hindsight is 20-20, hindsight is just another perspective. How can you gain perspective without it coming through hindsight? Hindsight is too late and can lead to missed opportunities or regret. Tackling a problem from a different angle, a different perspective, or a different position, can help you avoid regret.
Who is on your team and in your corner?
Who is the coach that sees the big picture from the sidelines and calls out instruction? Who is watching out for you from up top, on the side, down low, and up high?
Life and business is a team effort, don’t do it alone!
Listen up, reflect, and take it ALL in; the whole view! Leave no angle overlooked, seek out others opinions and suggestions, and take as many pictures as you can take before you make a decision.
