While I was searching photos of square watermelons I found also this interesting article that could apply also to a Filter Forger and the way to make filters
Lessons Of The Square Watermelon
What does this have do with anything besides square watermelons? There are a five lessons that you can take away fr om this story which will help you in all parts of your life. Here are them:
1.) Don’t Assume:
The major problem was that most people had always seen round watermelons so they automatically assumed that square watermelons were impossible before even thinking about the question.
Things that you have been doing a certain way your entire life have taken on the aura of the round watermelon and you likely don’t even take the time to consider if there is another way to do it.
Breaking yourself fr om assuming this way can greatly improve your overall life as you are constantly looking for new and better ways to do things.
2.) Question Habits:
The best way to tackle these assumptions is to question your habits.
If you can make an effort to question the way you do things on a consistent basis, you will find that you can continually improve the way that you live your life.
Forming habits when they have been well thought out is usually a positive thing, but most of us have adopted our habits from various people and places without even thinking about them.
3.) Be Creative:
When faced with a problem, be creative in looking for a solution.
This often requires thinking outside the box.
Most people who viewed this question likely thought they were being asked how they could genetically alter water melons to grow square which would be a much more difficult process to accomplish.
By looking at the question from an alternative perspective, however, the solution was quite simple. Being creative and looking at things in different ways in all portions of your live will help you find solutions to many problems wh ere others can’t see them.
4.) Look for a Better Way:
The square watermelon question was simply seeking a better and more convenient way to do something. The stores had flagged a problem they were having and asked if a solution was possible.
It’s impossible to find a better way if you are never asking the question in the first place . Always ask if there is a better way of doing the things that you do and constantly write down the things you wish you could do (but currently can’t) since these are usually hints about steps you need to change.
Get into the habit of asking yourself, “[B]Is there a better way I could be doing this?” and you will find there often is.[/B]
5.) Impossibilities Often Aren’t:
If you begin with the notion that something is impossible, then it obviously will be for you. If, on the other hand, you decide to see if something is possible or not, you will find out through trial and error.
