Be a Big-Picture Thinker
If you want to be a big-picture thinker, you will have to go against the flow of the world. We have all heard the phrase, ‘think outside of the box’. Society wants to keep people inside the box. Many people are satisfied with the status quo. They seek safety and simple answers. To be a big-picture thinker, you need to give yourself permission to go a different way, to blaze a trail, to discover a new world. And when your world gets bigger, you need to celebrate. All the time, never forgetting there is more out there in the world than what you have experienced.
Keep this in mind as you question whether or not you should make a career change, start a new business, or go back to school. Live as if the room you are currently in doesn’t have a roof.
