Quick Intro before we get to the Funnies
How things look depends on your point of view: where you are standing when you look at them — physically and perceptually.
Point of view depends on a lot of factors: how old you are, where you’re from, what’s familiar, your ethnicity, whether you are a male or a female, even what you’re looking FOR when you look.
To help clients get unstuck, coaches use a technique called reframing to help them change context — to stand somewhere else to look at a challenge or a situation with a fresh perspective.
Marriage counselors work with the problem of perspective all the time. Things look one way to him and another to her, and off to the divorce attorney we go.

And then there are the Funnies
Comics and comedians use reframing too, a sudden or quirky shift in perspective to make us laugh. And that’s what the Fridays Funnies Series is going to play with.
If I get the feeling that things have gotten a tad serious here on ADDandSoMuchMORE.com – or in the world – get ready for another hit of humor, most likely another Friday Funny.
YOU PLAY TOO
