Practical thinking always will lead to more than Perspective thinking can; Perspective thinking = When I show up the room will be crowding me for an autograph (Never happens)… Practical thinking = When I get there I am going to talk to everyone I can and see what networking possibilities I can make.
Practical thinking will always lead to more than results than Perspective thinking can. Perspective thinking is believing that when you show up the room will be crowding you for an autograph. Practical thinking is believing that when you arrive that you will talk to everyone you can and see to maximize what networking possibilities are available.
See the difference, it is similar to wants vs needs. You want people to crowd you for an autograph. What you need though is to make them want that. So keep things practical until it becomes in-practical to do so. You do not get to decide when that point has been reached it decides itself. Being practical is all about driving toward your goals never about imagining them. (OK you can because its fun but keep it down would you all those party s are loud).
Perspective thinking is all about imagination. Imagination has its place it is where your creativity comes from. Something entertainers in all areas have in abundance. If they didn’t they wouldn’t be doing what they are doing. Just don’t get sucked into the madness and be unable to keep things in perspective. Practical is what’s going to get you past the hurtles you face and how you are going to be able to set realistic goals for yourself. Being practical has also been called boring, un-fun, lame and several other mean spirited words by people all over the world that now have paper hats and name tags as part of their work uniform. See what I did there? Good.
So start working on yourself to be able to think Practically about everything, add in some dispassion to the mix and you will do well with this. Perspective thinking is useful for building your craft and your art not for building your business and yourself.
