Why change old patterns? People tend to get trapped into thinking process ruts, which limits their possibilities outside normal patterns and preventing them from tapping into fuller creative potential.
Both individuals and organizations are often confined to "thinking boxes," thereby blinded to what exists outside those limits and missing out on a world of opportunities which may be hidden. Knowing what exists outside our everyday field of view can produce numerous benefits. Making appropriate shifts in our thinking may be difficult, yet can be rewarding.
GET OUT OF YOUR THINKING BOX can teach readers how to make simple changes in everyday routines in order to shift their thinking.
Innovative ideas usually come to us during an incubation stage, often triggered by something which is not directly related to the problem on which we are working. When we try to force new ideas from inside our normal box of thinking the results are usually not spectacular. Creative ideas frequently come when we drop what we are doing and move on to some other thought pattern. Then we discover some great insights related to the problem which we thought we had dropped.
GET OUT OF YOUR THINKING BOX offers numerous suggestions to shift thought patterns and to find new thinking and ideas that will provide triggers. There are 365 ways to become someone or something else, think something else, do something else, or go somewhere else. Each one of these suggestions can help readers to get further outside thinking patterns so that they may discover new possibilities in their life and work.
