A change in perspective


Greetings from sunny Argentina! Yes, I know that may sound a bit strange, but this week’s blogs will come to you from south of the equator. I’m attending the yearly meeting of the International Association of Agricultural Journalists, and thanks to the wonders of the Internet I’m able to bring my work with me.

This is definitely a working meeting. No beaches (after all, it’s still winter here), but a lot of time on farms in Uruguay and Argentina.

It’s a great way for me to gain a new perspective on agriculture from farmers in a different part of the world. After all, looking at things from another point of view can give you an entirely different perspective, and maybe a fresh view of how I can do my job better, and more effectively.

But you don’t necessarily have to travel far and wide to gain a different perspective. Sometimes, looking at something differently can be accomplished right in your back yard. And that can bring you a new way of thinking.

I’ll share some of the things I’ve learned on my trip with you in future blogs.

What are some things you do to gain a different perspective on your farm?
