Humans are a pattern making species. Give us a chance to do something twice and we will make a pattern of it. These patterns influence how we see the world. Rote pattern following causes us to miss opportunities and insights.
Break your patterns. You will discover a new world.
Walk a different way. Reorder your icons. Adopt a new habit. Change your diet. Start from a different perspective. Ask a new question. Change the order of steps or drop one.
Break patterns can be disconcerting and uncomfortable. That feeling is called learning.
The biggest threats and opportunities are in the grey where the patterns no longer apply. Test yourself there it is where you add most value.
