Success Notes of the Day: Chapter 1: Cultivate Big Picture Thinking

How Successful People Think

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

By John C. Maxell

“Big picture thinkers are never satisfied with what they already know. They are always visiting new places, reading new books, meeting new people, learning new skills. And because of that practice, they are often able to connect the unconnected. They are lifelong learners.”*

“Writer Henry David Thoreau wrote, “Many an object is not seen, though it falls within the range of our visual ray, because it does not come within the range of our intellectual ray.”*

The answers, resources, and everything we need are all around us

“Most people are married mentally to the status quo. They want what was, not what can be. They seek safety and simple answers. To think big-picture, you need to give yourself permission to go a different way, to break new ground, to find new worlds to conquer.”*

How are you going to go a different way, break new ground, or find new worlds to conquer?

*Quotes from: John C. Maxwell, How Successful People Think (New York: Center Street, 2009), pages 1-10.
