Mentoring Tip Think Out of the Box

When presented with a difficult task we often resort to the most logical solution.  Before making a decision, ask yourself “If I had no barriers, how would I solve this problem?”  Imagination can often provide an alternative solution that may have originally be overlooked.  Speak with your mentor today about out of the box solutions to everyday problems.
