Change of Mind
Seeing things from different perspectives is an essential Creativity skill. It is more than merely a theoretical exercise, though. The ultimate goal of seeing things from various points of view is to open the possibility of changing your mind.
To be creative, you have to be open to diverse views and be willing to consider them not just for the purpose of discussion but also as real options that can affect your path.
- What have I changed my mind about recently?
- What opportunities did that event open?
- What is causing me to hold some views firmly and avoid real exposure to different ideas?
- How can I create more opportunities to get deeply familiar with different views and perspectives?
