When I run, I typically take the same route

When I run, I typically take the same route. 🏃

I start at the lake and go past the baseball fields.

When I reach the school, I always turn left. ⬅️

The route loops around the neighborhood for 2 miles, bringing me back to the school.

But on a recent run, something inspired me to turn right. ➡️

It felt strange at first.

I was running in the opposite direction.

It was the same road. 🛣️

The same front yards.

And the same houses. 🏡

But everything looked and felt different.

I noticed a beautiful flower garden from the new angle.

An elegant Victorian home.

While running from this unfamiliar perspective, I saw things I previously missed. 👀

The run from this point of view seemed to go faster and be more pleasurable.

The experience got me thinking. 🤔

How we see things depends on our background, knowledge, culture, and society.

But these can often cloud our judgments and decisions.

What else might I be missing by taking the same approach, route, or line of thinking? 🙈

Could the solution to a personal issue be found simply by viewing it from a new angle? 👓

How might the answer to a business challenge be unlocked just by looking at it from a different perspective? 🔍

Routines help give us a sense of control and reduce stress.

But these may also be holding us back.

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. 🤯
