A simple example of how relying on just our own mindset, knowledge and experience can keep us from finding a better solution.

Mindsets are powerful and can cloud our thinking regarding new or more optimal solutions. As individuals, it's essential to develop a habit of challenging our own perspectives and mindsets, being open to different points of view and opinions and develop agile thinking skills that ensure we don't just jump to familiar or obvious solutions before evaluating as many alternatives as we can. We can quickly open ourselves up to more creative and innovative solutions through cross-functional teams which can help us view problems/solutions from multiple angles.
