Solving problems through visioning
The next time you're facing a challenge, look past the obvious solutions. The overused moves in your industry will only go so far. Instead, look wide and explore emerging trends outside your industry. See if you can borrow an idea, pattern, or technology to create a highly differenced - and more impactful - outcome.
Think about using a 15-minute "trend workout" each week. Schedule the time to explore the world around you. Discover what's new and what's next, and it will allow you to craft a successful future of your own. Peek into the window of the future, and it will fuel your progress today. These 15 minutes will do a lot more for your company and career than saving you 15% on auto insurance.
If you really want to seize your full potential, make it a priority to be on the lookout for the new trends making waves. The hunt is on.
