Our perspectives are informed by what we are exposed to. If you want to broaden your perspective, broaden your exposure. – James B. Rosseau, Sr.
Growing up in North Philadelphia, my recollection of the choices for sports was basketball or football. When it was time to head to junior high school, I went to Baldi Middle School in northeast Philadelphia as they had a great music program.
Beyond the music program, I was introduced to a number of new sports. While I ultimately stayed with football, it was a choice from an expanded set of options.
When we venture out of our comfort zones to the unfamiliar, we expand our options and our perspective.
