What does it take to bring fresh eyes to a situation?


Fresh eyes bring new life to just about anything and are one of the keys to innovation.  Here are a few suggestions:

Write down what you appreciate about the situation — look for the gift — this may remove reistance
Approach with questions as if you know nothing
Physically change yourself with respect to the situation, take a different route, move your chair, etc.
Consider the opposite of what you perceive
Find someone who knows nothing about the situation ask him or her for perspective
Take a break — exercise
Let it go for a longer period of time here I write about what I did

Pick one, which will it be?
