From time to time we all get stuck and sometimes all it takes is the perspective of a story to push us forward. Here's one of my favourites from Matt Rawlins. It’s about an experiment carried out by scientists in South America who were studying the Arawana fish.
The Arawana eats other fish so they put it in a tank with a glass divider down the middle and small fish on the other side.
The Arawana was hungry and saw those smaller fish and went after them like a cat on a mouse. The problem for the Arawana was it kept swimming into the glass divider and after a while gave up.
The next day the scientists removed the glass and let the fish swim wherever it wanted. The small fish were terrified but the Arawana just swam around ignoring them.
A few days later the Arawana died, but not of starvation as there was plenty of food. The fish died because its past experiences dictated its present decision. A mistake I am sure you want to avoid.
