3 Ways to Broaden Your
HCM Lifestyle lifestyle is here to ‘Help us all become a better version of ourselves.’ Therefore we are sharing 2 ways to broaden your horizon and see all that the world has to offer.
1) Increase Your Knowledge
I am a person who likes to be involved in everything from acting to bodybuilding to French and fashion design. However, although I have a realm of interests, my research is sometimes narrow. Rather than reading books on new technological advancement or discoveries in the medical field, I tend to focus more on the health industry and business world. I strongly believe knowledge is power so the more I increase my knowledge, the more power I have to make my ideas come to fruition.
2) Think Like Thomas Edison
I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work. –Thomas Edison
When developing a working lightbulb, Edison observed not only what didn’t work for him, but also what didn’t work in the failed patents of others. This is interesting because it relates to the fact that most innovations are not something ‘new’ but rather something improved. By observing patents that didn’t work for someone else and then making the necessary changes to improve the patent. A person is able to create a newly, improved object or service. Therefore, we must alway have our eyes, ears and mind open as we never know what may cross our path.
3) Expand your Knowledge
Expand your knowledge in a gaiety of fields. Instead of continuously reading the similar types of novels and researching the same topics, open up to anything and embrace each newfound fact. As well, observe people’s everyday actions and listen to their feedback about how they would improve or change certain things in their life. For example, if a person is continuous annoyed by the operation of a particular product, maybe ask them what annoys them and try to think of ways to fix their problem with a more innovative product. Overall, continuously be looking at the world with a different perspective and light everyday. Our world is changing before our eyes and we must be aware of these changes and not stuck in one rigid way of thought.
