Notice what happens when we meet new people.
Our perspective begins to change.
In some cases our focus also begins to shift.
It’s that old adage of; do the same thing and get the same results. Mix with the same people and you keep a similar outlook.
Lately I keep seeing the same quote;
“if you’re the smartest person in the room then it’s time to move to another room”
It makes sense though as we meander our way through each week and month.
Our auto-pilot kicks in and it all becomes a little easy and a little samey.
Speaking with Chris Barez-Brown recently he talks so much about breaking out and challenging ourselves to do different things each day. In his latest book Wake Up!
Our perspective is being influenced through technology and what we see through apps, social media and you tube and it’s becoming increasingly harder to break out of our auto-pilot.
Here’s one simple challenge for everyone to have a go at:
Contact someone in your network that you are connected with but don’t necessarily have a strong relationship with. You know them, but don’t really know them! Ask them some questions. Find out what they’re doing in their life and just listen. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you feel inspired, energised and buzzing with different ideas.
New people give us a new perspective.
A new perspective provides us with a new focus.
Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
Until next time, thanks for reading.
