At times, we find ourselves trying to improve a… situation (job, business, relationship, etc.). Something we do seems like it could be better.
Typically, we start looking around among the immediate circumstances to see how we can make the most of them; how we can get more out of what we have.
However, there is the chance that, in the immediate context of our… situation, we are already doing the most we can with what's present.
Sometimes, if we want things to be better, we need to branch out. We need to get out of the corner where we sit and find out what the other corners have to offer. A business might need to expand one product line or drop another. In a job, maybe it's time to brush off the resume and see if more rewarding possibilities exist in a different department. Or company.
Sometimes, in order to improve things, we need to look past the immediate and examine other possibilities. Maybe… just maybe, we need to play in a different sandbox!
