The frame makes the painting

There is an multimillion-dollar industry built around framing pictures and paintings. We may not always be able to explain why, but most people will agree that a frame can make or break the artwork.

And sometimes we don’t even know what is “best” until we see what is “bad.” Worse, however, is when we’re completely unaware of how the frame is shaping our perception of what we’re seeing.

It’s easy to see how this metaphor spills over into daily life, where perspective is everything. The assumptions, beliefs, and attitudes we uphold reveal either beauty and opportunity or ugliness and obstacles.

But the first step to framing reality in a constructive way is knowing that we have a choice – that the default perspective (the status quo) is not the only option.

Choose your frame wisely – and be open-minded about frameworks you may not know exist.  In fact, you may discover that the best frame may be no frame at all.

Be a Maverick,
