One little tweak. That’s all it takes. It is something you didn’t see before but it was the result of someone outside your normal working day giving you one little tip that made you uber productive. And unless you get a new perspective, you will miss it.
One of the things I love most about my work is going to conferences. And when I do I get to step out of my normal world and into a new environment which throws off my normal thinking and ways of working (which is a good thing). There I am able to rethink what I do, how I do it, and improve myself.
The problem is that most people don’t have the time to do this very often. But it is a MUST for us. We need to be able to get a periodic new perspective or we will get stuck in the same way of working and, very often, in the same bad habits we have.
This VINJONES Discussion is about just that. If you don’t have a lot of time to step away, what can you do to bring in new perspectives?
