LTD: Thinking Outside the Box

By Susie Harting, LTD Consultant

Thinking outside the box can challenge the “normal” way of doing things or it can take us out of our comfort zone. Helping teach grandkids or our own children how to do their common core math this spring was a job! I could get the same answer as they did but the steps they took were way outside my box of doing things.

Going to Mass online was not as spiritually motivating for me as receiving the Body and Blood of Christ. Opportunity to attend Mass was available every day livestream. Livestream on Facebook, YouTube, FaceTime, and Twitter to name a few were “outside the box.” But should it be outside the box?

Meetings with CCW boards and memberships were held by conference calls. Then we learned about Zoom. Held elections by a Zoom meeting! Was this a learning experience? Yes, it was. Members helped each other. Our leaders had to step up and encourage members that this is indeed possible.

I would like to challenge you to use social media resources to communicate. Then, you can challenge someone else to do the same and be there for them. Help them through this process by sharing your experience.

After completing your first Zoom meeting, how did you feel? For me, it was a feeling of great accomplishment. Wow, who would have thought that we would hold board meetings via the internet!

As CCW members, we became able to think outside the box and took on the challenge of changing the normal way of doing things. We became better thinkers and willing to learn new things.

Are you a creature of habit? Just as we become comfortable with a “new way of doing things,” the program changes. Always be open for new ideas and changes.

God has blessed us with many talents to come together in Christ during the difficult times.

With God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26
