As the saying goes, there’s a flip side to everything.
In this 2 minute video from TEDX, Derek Sivers shows this is true in a few ways you might not expect.
This is a great video to inspire you to think differently in your approach to business.
Here are three great ways to ‘flip your thinking’ in business:
1. Think in opposites
Rather than asking, “how do I get people in my front door?”, ask the opposite. “how do I stop people coming in my front door?” Answering the opposite question to your problem can often help you find answers you hadn’t considered.
2. Look at problems from another perspective
Take on a new persona. View your business from your customer’s perspective to really get a feel on how your business is perceived from their point of view.
3. Get out of your comfort zone
“That’s the way we’ve always done it”. How often is that your answer to why you do things a certain way? Step out of your comfort zone and reassess your business processes. Should you be approaching some tasks in a completely different way? Refreshing your processes can help to increase your productivity.
