Dan Holstein here coming to you from…my garage! Which, in the nice weather, is where I like to work because I can think out here and there’s motorcycles around, so it’s always good!

What I want to talk to you about today is the Magic Box.

It’s just an ordinary box.
It opens, but there’s no obvious way of how to open it. After a lot of experimentation, I found that you can open it up just by grabbing these two corners only. There’s no other way to get this thing open but by grabbing on those two corners. And when it’s closed, nothings
obvious, and you can’t really tell.

It got me thinking.
Sometimes we’re trying to do something new, and we can’t find the “corners”. We’re struggling and struggling trying to get something going, and it’s not working.

So how did I end up finding the corners on this?
Well, I reached out to a resource who would have the answer, and it was the magician that I bought this magic box from, and after much fooling around
{magician, remember?}
, he showed me how to do it.

If you’re working on a new challenge and you’re getting stuck,
don’t keep doing the same thing over and over.(click here to tweet!) We know what that’s called right? Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

Someone else out there may know
about what you’re doing, already, or might be able to give you a hand. Reach out to a resource. All the successful people I’ve ever met are always willing to give that bit of time help out and give a hand up.(click here to tweet!)

So reach out to someone who’s got the skills to open up the magic box that you’re looking to open up, and get the prize inside!
