TRIPLE III TIME: Staying “Open-Minded!”

mechanical-2033446_960_720 (1)During the course of my professional career, there have been many times when I wish I had a “mind-old-stuff-reduction” tool.  My dream was that this special tool would periodically remove old programs, services, information and habits that are no longer relevant and in fact have a negative influence on new cooler initiatives! I was NOT hoping that co-workers lose great learnings and good experiences… but rather attempt to make a real clear path and appropriate mind space for whatever new responsibilities were on the horizon.

Think about it! If there were a workshop on “Mind-Cleansing” … would you go? If it helped you rid yourself of old, negative, time-stealing, mind-space occupying stuff… do you think it would be a positive experience.

Bottomline: What I am trying to say is that it is critical to give new ideas a totally clean, fresh, open area in your mind to be professionally strong.  If you are a good listener but immediately attach old thoughts, historic challenges and bad experiences to any new concept… your creativity and development potential will NEVER be “open for business”.
