I know, that was a cheap rhetorical trick.
You and I surely fit that category. So for our own good, I think it's time to start "Thinking outside our flocks."
We're all a part of some flock or herd of people who can get really immersed in better ways to do what we do. As a result, business people read business books, attorneys read articles about the law, and people wanting a career read everything possible about careers.
But at a time when we're looking for creative and innovative ways to think about and do things, is that really the most mind-expanding way to go?
If you feel stuck, here are some sources that could lead you to think about your situation from a different angle:
Wishful Thinking is the brain child of Mark McGuinness, a coach--and poet--whose mind doesn't seem to stop.
Are you thinking globally? Check out Juan's insights at Global Culture.
Mark Goren at Transmission Content + Creative offers insights on a wide range of topics from the perspective of a copywriter/marketer whose take is that "the traditional model of advertising is broken."
So here's a starting point for all of us who can become a bit ingrained in our thinking to break free from the crowd and "Think Outside the Flocks."
