Think outside the box. Where are your boundaries?

Mike RilstoneThis image, from Mike Rilstone’s facebook page, is a great, visual reminder of the unwitting chains that can bind our thinking.  Of the assumptions we can unknowingly make.  Of perspectives that can blind instead of illuminate.

What assumptions are you making that are muddying the waters, preventing a clearer picture?

What boundaries are binding your thinking?

P.S. if your first reaction to the image was ‘that’s cheating,’ or ‘that’s not following the rules’ you may be a Stop Life Lens™ which means your gifts include the ability to reflect, think about things & ruminate.  On a bad day however you may be hard pressed to try something new on the spur of the moment like your Go Life Lens™ cousins … like putting the 0 outside the box.
