To think big, find the time to think proactively about your situation. If you don’t you end up in reaction mode and that’s not conducive to finding solutions and ideas that address the larger aspects of an issue.

Consistently reframe your problems by expanding possibilities and perspectives. First see the problem for what it is, then twist your perspective of the problem in a creative way to help yourself brainstorm better ideas and solutions.

You must also think from the perspective of having no limitations or fears and ask big questions persistently until the right answer comes to mind.
Big thinkers always attempt to maximize the use of their time. As a result, they primarily focus on only the highest value activities that will help them to bring their big ideas into reality.
