I took this photo on one of the numerous cycle paths that criss-cross a housing estate near my home. Why is this one cycle path marked by a symbol of a bike with square wheels? Why deviate from the instantly recognisable, and therefore quickly understood, cycle path symbol of a bike with round wheels?
We are all guilty of doing things in a way that inhibits what we are trying to achieve. What are the strange quirks or unquestioned patterns of behaviour which are eating up our time, killing our creativity? Routinely attending meetings with no purpose nor agenda? Powering on through when we should be taking a break? Not keeping our most used materials close to hand? Completing activities a certain way because that’s the way they have always been done?
Take a moment to recognise when you are riding a bike with square wheels, make a change and watch your creativity soar
