Jeff leads Your Project X, a social venture dedicated to helping people (re)discover their purpose to build careers they’ll love. He has more than 19 years experience as an entrepreneur, consultant, professor and change-maker. He is the founder of five social ventures, including IBM’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) consulting practice. In 2011, he developed the curriculum for the first MBA in Sustainability on the East Coast, at Bard College, where he was the Leadership professor. He was also two-time Chairman of the Carnegie New Leaders at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

This week Jeff and I discuss actionable strategies for shifting your perspective and thinking in order to realize opportunities that may be right in front of you. As much as we’d like to think we are open minded to new opportunities and changing the trajectory of our careers, we are almost always searching for new solutions from the same mindset that gets us stuck in the first place.

So how do you change your thinking? Jeff and I outline and discuss six methods that you can put into practice today:

  1. Get advice from someone that has nothing in common with you
  2. Change your setting
  3. Alter your mind (not in that way though!)
  4. Get rid of your phone
  5. Draw your future fulfilled
  6. Come up with the worst ideas possible
