I read an article the other day that said when you go through a doorway (doesn’t matter from where or to where), your brain essentially resets its boundaries, changing your perceived point of origin and—unfortunately—often causing you to forget why you walked through the doorway in the first place.
It was an interesting article, but what I’m curious about is whether you can use that psychological phenomena to jump-start a new perspective whenever you want.
This time of year, when everyone else seems to be transitioning from summer to school or from vacation back to work, or making some other significant move, I find that I’m looking for my own transition. I’m no longer hooked into formal school calendars, so I don’t have that method imposed on me and I’m wondering if I can find another way to mark the end of one season and the beginning of the next. Something that’s more deliberate than just turning to a new page in my calendar.
So who knows… Going through a doorway might be just the ticket for me. You never know what’s waiting on the other side.
