Sometimes life is just about presentation-how things are introduced. In all reality, this is leftover steak in a tortilla. But we don’t call it that. We call it “Grilled Steak Burritos”.
I’m a teacher by day. I get to teach really fun and exciting things, but of course there are times when I must cover material that is interpreted as boring or tedious. Sometimes I’m able to disguise the unwanted agenda with games, conversations, debates or interactive assignments. All of a sudden those boring or tedious lessons are interesting. Making mundane things seem adventurous can feel like a colossal task, but when done correctly, it gets the job done.
The same goes for leftovers – with a little creativity, you can make the most uninteresting leftovers look like you slaved over dinner for hours. I’d also be willing to lend this argument for a mindset in general – with a little creativity, everything is more palatable. If your work days are becoming increasingly difficult – what’s a creative solution? If there is a problem that doesn’t seem to ever go away, why not try to look from the outside in? It’s amazing the difference perspective makes. Your trashed leftover could be my mouth-watering dinner Change your perspective, and maybe more things will start going your way. If nothing else, life sure will taste better.
