Have you ever been in three places at once?
They say it's impossible to even be in two places at once, but I did the impossible recently by literally being in three states at once.
While hiking up Mt. Frissell I came across the tri-state marker for Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. By standing on that spot I was in three places at once!
This experience reminded me of the value of possibility thinking for finding novel solutions to challenging problems. It's an issue we all fall prey to at some point, when we're looking but simply not seeing what's right in front of us because of the limits of preconceived notions.
When we shift our focus from problems and instead focus on opportunities, we empower ourselves with the gift of perspective to discover novel solutions.
Up until now, have you been looking but not seeing? How might your life be different if you could see more possibilities?
