How To Get Perspective Without Leaving Town?

How To Get Perspective Without Leaving Town I did leave town, for a two-week vacation, and am just back and hugely refreshed.

What’s startling is how clearly I can see my way through two client communications challenges that seemed impossible to solve before the break. They’ve just settled into place, and I can’t understand why I didn’t see it before.

So my challenge to you (and to myself) is this: How to get perspective on communications work, without leaving town?

I’ve tried these techniques with some success over the years, but am looking for new ideas:

  • Brainstorming with a colleague or friend, preferably one in a different line of work
  • Putting “it” (whatever the challenge is) away for a few days.
