Each of us is not responsible for our first thought, but we are responsible for our next action. This simple mantra not only can create powerful shifts in thinking, it can also allow us to see things that were previously unseen.
The video in this post of two women experiencing their first flight is a powerful example of how anyone, anywhere, can see the wonder in life. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like seeing or experience something for the very first time, be it the birth of your son or daughter or that initial experience, as a child, of watching fireworks light up the sky.
First Time Thinking comes naturally when it’s actually the first time that something happens. Yet, this mindset can be activated any time we choose. All it takes is a conscious choice to see the details around us as though for the very first time.
Leaders, salespeople, customer service personnel, and support staff see the unseen by taking a moment to really think about the following question:
What if I were seeing or experiencing this for the very first time? What would I see?
Opportunities abound, problems become immediately apparent, and subtle, yet, important details become crystal clear the moment we engage in First Time Thinking. What will you see that you haven’t been seeing?
Take a look and find out.
