Think Inside the Box. How to Break Out of a Slump in your Life and Business

We are constantly fed the message that in order to be more creative in life or business we must "think outside the box." Well, I was attending the TD Annual Mortgage Sales Conference this week in Atlantic City and I have the opportunity to meet special guess, Phil Hansen, he says that the real key to unleashing brilliant ideas is to think inside the box. I realized that it’s really about thinking “inside” the box that really matters. What goes on inside your business and inside your mind that makes the difference. In art school, Phil Hansen developed an unruly tremor in his hand that kept him from creating the pointillist drawings he loved. Hansen was devastated, floating without a sense of purpose. Until a neurologist made a simple suggestion: embrace this limitation ... and transcend it.  The question I’d ask you is whether you’re comfortable staying exactly where you are right now in your current business. Because that’s where your past strategies will get you. And that only works if the world around stays exactly the same. I Hope you get the point!
