A beginner has a fresh perspective. The amateur and unprofessional are open to new ideas; they will try anything because they don’t know how things ‘should‘ be done and they have not yet become entrenched in a particular method. You can make the most of their inexperience to achieve uncommon goals.
It is important to avoid becoming an expert, specialist or authority with immovable vision boundaries. Because those who do constantly refer to the past experience. Whatever has worked in the past, they repeat. They turn knowledge into repetitive ritual.
In order to breathe fresh air into yourself or your company, spend a day routinely working on something that is valuable, but not what you are ‘supposed’ to be working on. Switching jobs creates an environment that encourages innovation.
Let me also add that this is applicable in our relationships. Are you a husband or a wife, switch roles routinely (I didn’t say the husbands should get pregnant…lol). Help your wife/husband in that valuable activity and see the tremendous positive impact it would have.
