We can gain new perspective in most situations if we’re willing to flip the score.

What does that mean? I’m referring to a tool to help us look at what’s in front of us with fresh eyes.

We can do this when it comes to our personal, professional or even artistic aspects of our lives.

One way of the flipping the score is by putting yourself in their shoes to fully understand how the other person is feeling. Or maybe you can take someone you know and ask, “what would they do if they were in this situation?” Or you can do the much more common act of asking someone’s else opinion.

The idea is to do something to give us a new way of looking at the picture in front of us – to flip it on it’s head. Often times, we have a reactionary response before thinking it through and considering the consequences.

Just a little effort to refresh our screen’s could make all the difference.
