Right after dinner, I received a phone call – a bit out of the blue. At the other end of the line was a friend I really enjoy talking with. The last time we spoke, she was more than a bit defeated by an uncooperative Board of a non-profit. Her role as President didn’t seem to carry weight and everyone expected her to do the heavy lifting for just about everything.
The call last night had a very different tone – it was one of hope, positive expectation, and massive amounts of energy and enthusiasm. What was the difference? My friend saw the situation and the people in it – in a brand new way – by seeing them from another person’s point of view. This fresh beginning inspired her on so many levels.
So if feel stuck (even a little), ask someone to be your eyes and ears for a day.
