Suppose you’re in a situation that is very familiar—perhaps you’re driving to work or doing something else that you’ve done a hundred times before—and you suddenly feel as if you’re experiencing something completely new. This is vuja de, and it could be a key to becoming a better questioner and a more creative, innovative thinker.
“Vuja de” it´s not just for creative Jobs, people running companies, can spark ideas and insights if they can somehow manage to look at familiar ways of doing business with a fresh perspective—and to do this they must act and behave as if they’re newcomers or outsiders… as if they’re seeing it all for the first time.
The same could be said for someone tackling social issues or even personal ones: If you can somehow look at old, entrenched problems and challenges as if you’re seeing them for the first time, you’re better able to ask fundamental questions that can sometimes get to the heart of the issue and yield profound insights.
“The vuja de mentality is the ability to keep shifting opinion and perception. It means shifting our focus from objects or patterns in the foreground to those in the background… It means thinking of things that are usually assumed to be negative as positive, and vice versa. It can means reversing assumptions about cause and effect, or what matters most versus least. It means not traveling through life on automatic pilot.”
