Encountering barriers

I've encountered a few discussions this week about how to get around barriers. We encounter barriers all the time and usually the way forward is obvious, but sometimes we have to stop and think about it. Sometimes there are challenges to overcome like the lack of finances or people to do the job. Sometimes what we have been doing is not working anymore and we need new ideas. Usually, we resist the new ideas because we like the comfortable and the familiar. It can be very hard to let go of what we've been doing and how we've been doing it. We see admitting that we're at the end of something as a failure, when it really just means we're at the end of something. We tend to work hard to find the money or the people or a way to solve the problem and get going again. And that very well may be the solution. I think sometimes we need to stop and think about the opportunity in front of us to stare at the blank slate for a while. Give yourself time to let your mind wonder. Have a group discussion where no idea is too big or too crazy. Often the end of one thing can be the beginning of something new, creative, and innovative.
