Blogs » Your Advocate: an editor's blog » How do you change your point of view?


We're all such creatures of habit that sometimes we don't even stop to appreciate a gorgeous South Texas afternoon.

We tried to alter our perspective Thursday by carrying our chairs outside onto the roof of the Victoria Advocate. Our newsroom has a door opening to the roof, so we moved our news meeting outside.

I don't know that we came up with any break-through ideas because of this change, but the sun did feel good. And I, at least, appreciated the unstated homage to the Beatles' "Let It Be" recording session.

How do you get out of your routine?
