The Glass is Half…

Lidor WyssockyBlog

Are you the type of person who sees the glass half full or do you tend to see the glass half empty? Which is better? Maybe you need to be a little bit of both. And maybe you just need to focus on the glass! Many of us are obsessed with dividing the world into simple groups (I might have just done the same thing). You are either an optimistic or a pessimistic. You either see the glass this way or that way. But such clear-cut distinction prevents us from generating new ideas or creative solutions to whatever it is we are facing. The effective way to come up with an original thought about anything relies on your ability to continually change your perspective.

Two Meters Apart

Nine months ago my third child was born. My middle child was almost eight years old at the time, so I was quite unprepared to the amount of time I would spend… on the floor. The time we are spending together is spent either with him on my hands, or with me on the floor. And since my back is challenged as it is and for him there’s that much you can spend without “running” around , we both prefer the floor option.

Forty Two

“Forty-two!” yelled Loonquawl. “Is that all you’ve got to show for seven and a half million years’ work?” “I checked it very thoroughly,” said the computer, “and that quite definitely is the answer. I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you’ve never actually known what the question is.”                                                                            ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy In a couple of hours I’ll turn 42 . Some might say this is a good time to reflect back. Some might say it’s a perfect time to look ahead. Both options are probably best done outside of this humble blog, but this might be a good opportunity to explain why (and how) seempli was created in the past year.

I’m Starting to Like This Place

What happens when you ask kids to write down what they saw in a museum? Some pretty cool stuff! Kids are masters of observing. They see the most unexpected things, or the most trivial things we are already used to ignore. Their eyes are connected to their minds in the most profound way. Anything can be used as raw material for imagining, creating, or just thinking about the world around them.

Change Your Perspective

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”                                                                                                                                 – Albert Einstein How many times have your heard the sentence “you’ve got to change your perspective”? At work, in relationships, or in the context of finding a creative solution to a problem, changing your perspective almost always guarantees surprising positive results. But how does one perform this magic? How can we simply change our perspective, especially if the original perspective is so rooted in our minds?
