Paper Clip Paradox

If you hit a wall when you're trying to solve a problem, step back and take a breather. That mental space releases the pressure and opens up your mind for other ideas.

You can create this mental space for others by giving them a moment of astonishment -there's even a way of astonishing yourself.

Your legend as an astonishing exec is growing. Your proposals are talked about and remembered. You are being talked about and remembered. The gasps of amazement and "hey wows" warm the cockles of your heart. But every now and then you sit by yourself alone with your warm cockles and wish that just once you could somehow astonish yourself.
