You can do this exercise on your own or with your team. It helps you hone the skills of observation and synthesis and to show the power of changing one’s perspective. Sometimes we get stuck on problems because we approach them with the wrong scale, we go after something that is way too big or something so small, which might feel pointless and make you lose motivation. You can use this activity to remind yourself to zoom in or out when you feel stuck. It can help you frame a challenge of appropriate size that you can actually act on.
This exercise is useful when you need a new perspective on something or when you need a boost of inspiration for something you are working on. The exercise helps you to use your environment as a source of inspiration.
