I always wondered what a coach thought while he had to wait to hear the outcome of the game from the inside of a locker room. A different angle always gives a different perspective. The right thing to do as a coach is ask himself how he got their in the first place, examine other alternatives to that particular type of behavior, and commit to not acting like that again. Not only is this better for the coach, its better for the players and the spectators.
If you've ever looked up a tall tree from its trunk, you notice a completely different view. A good photographer knows this and tries to get these different angles. Sometimes when we're confused about another person or their behavior or life in general, its good to ask another person about their opinion on the issue. Many times when I'm stuck on how "bad things are" or how "wrong" another person is, I like to think of an aerial view of the situation. Imagining the view from up in the sky, is in my opinion, the best angle to see "through" the play. This way our partners don't have to bail us out because we were on top of the play.
|It is not always by plugging away at a difficulty and sticking to it that one overcomes it; often it is by working on the one next to it. Some things and some people have to be approached obliquely, at an angle. ~Andre Gide|
