See things differently by seeing different things.

Since so much of our life is habituated it can be difficult to solve problems, create fresh possibilities or question the status quo. Consciously breaking the pattern can lead to surprising breakthroughs.

Here are some of the strategies I've used:

Vacation – Creativity is rearranging the old to create the new. But you can't pull from an empty well, so make an effort to place yourself in new circumstances.

The long way home – You've probably adopted the most direct, fastest and efficient way to and from the practice. Take the scenic route.

Morning routine – Get up earlier. A common denominator among high achievers is that they're early risers.

Make decisions faster – Go with your first gut instinct. Avoid belaboring decisions, especially the small, inconsequential ones–like what to order for lunch.

Read – Acquire the wisdom of others by reading about business, marketing, money-management or other non-healthcare topics you've typically shunned.
