  1. Burst your own bubble. The routine of daily life gets us caught up in our own bubbles. It happens to everyone.  The key is recognizing the bubble you live in and making a conscious effort to burst it.  Only then can we see the people and opportunities around us in a new light.
  2. See the people and not the problem. When facing adversity, often we focus too much on the issue.  The “problem” grabs all our attention.  Instead, if we focus on the people involved (who is affected? who can help?), the solutions tend to reveal themselves.
    1. Little by little, one travels far. Great change in the world come in small, incremental steps.
