|Think outside the box... it's where the best ideas live. (Photo credit: ArtJonak)|
For each of us, thinking outside the box should be part of daily life. I have been amazed to see people bypass great opportunities to turn their lives around through education and training or just by associating with an entirely different type of social network. Through fear or just plain blindness or indifference, they fail to think outside the box. It is more comfortable to stick with the routine of the familiar, even if the familiar is a dead end.
When you face a problem or challenge, do not be afraid to wait for a solution that has not been tried before by anyone or by only a few. It often takes time for the new approach to germinate as our minds work on a challenge. But wait, make haste slowly (festina lente, as Augustus liked to say), and you may change your life, your world, and maybe the world of others.
