Happy new year. May God brings more prosperity and happiness to you in 2010.
The new year milestone forces us to reflect back on our past achievements and mistakes. If you are still not getting there despite all out efforts for a good number of years, its a sign that your current way of doing things or thinking is not helping you. Instead of digging the same hole deeper and deeper to find gold, you may need to dig a new hole at a different place.
Albert Einstein rightly said “The problems of today will not be solved by the same thinking that produced the problems in the first place.”
You are always told to think “out of box”, be creative, become problem solver, have a different perspective etc. But how? I would suggest to start with one of the de Bono’s books. “Teach yourself how to think” is a good start.
