Shake Up Your Mind!
Learn from others outside your experience:
Appreciate how other people think by getting into the head of an innovative thinker. Browse biographies and pick one written about someone outside of your field. If you’re someone who loves numbers and facts, read about an artist. If you’re artistic, read a business biography. If you avoid politics, read about a politician. You get the idea. Take your mind where it doesn’t ordinarily go, and try to appreciate how the subject of the biography thought.
Shake up your mind!
