Have you been sampling new things recently? Because if you're failing to break away from the everyday, you're limiting what you're able to accomplish. After all, without branching out and attempting things that you've never tried before, how will you know the best way for you to complete a task? You need to experiment to be able to make the right decisions and judgments with regards to how to get something done.
For example, how do you know the best route to get to work unless you have tried some other roads to see if they're faster, less busy, or simply more pleasant overall? How do you know that a specific recipe is the best one unless you've tried changing it to see if it can be improved.
Similarly, you need to try more than just a printed telephone book in order to find out information relating to telephone numbers. If you try new services on the internet, then you'll open up many more doors to reveal a great deal more information that a telephone book could never have provided for you. This is because telephone books contain only landline numbers and they only provide forward searches. The only way you can access the information in a phone book is by using the name of the person or company.
On the other hand, the internet allows you to manipulate information to better suit your needs. For example, if you don't have the person's name, but you have their telephone number instead, then you can try a reverse cell phone search or a backward landline number lookup to see if you can find out to whom that number belongs.
This method opens up an entirely new world of investigation in case you need to look into a number that you've found, one that you've had on your Caller ID, or even to look into your own number to see what other people are capable of finding out about you through your digits alone. Without giving that a try, you limit yourself to the information in the phone book that can be searched only one way, and that is often out of date.
