So I found this article by McKinsey about thinking of the possible rather than focusing on the probable really helpful.
Although it is written in the context of business, I see meaningful application to our personal lives.
So now I am thinking: am I asking the wrong questions?
Instead of focusing on finding alternative ways to achieve the same thing again, have I canvassed all the options? Do I want the same things in the future?
What are the questions I could ask that will open up many more options and indeed, a better sense of control of my destiny?
As Einstein said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Can you share any examples where you changed your thinking? Did it give you better outcomes?
