Nonchalantly hold your glass of water or put it to one side. Show the people around you a business card and draw an arrow on it. Place the arrow against a wall or anything that will prop it up.
We all need a little direction in life now and again, don’t you agree?
Point to the arrow.
Let’s think different. Can anyone get this arrow to change directions without touching the business card?
The onlookers should be stumped.
Take a casual sip of your water from the glass.
A drink can help change your perspective, especially when you do this with your drink…
Place the water glass in front of the arrow. The arrow will have flipped directions.
Some extra lines you can try
- I find this change of perspective quite refreshing.
- Try this out as a bar bet, or to impress kids, just not to impress kids in a bar.
- It’s easy to change perspective… just add water.
Make use of your business cards. Use the situation to either keep someone else’s card or to give yours away.
The arrow is pointing us in a good direction. Let’s go there together.
