is an opportunity. It is an occasion to assert control in our life
and to take responsibility for our direction and progress. It's a
time to test our theories -- to improve on the ones that work and to
learn from the ones that don't work. In problem-solving, we learn how
the world works, and we learn about ourselves and our capabilities.
We can approach a problem in many ways. These techniques
include making an analogy of it, drawing a picture of it, viewing
it in the opposite of the convention perspective, redefining it in
a different context or just in different words, imagining the
advice we would give to someone who approached us with this
problem, challenging our assumptions regarding the situation,
asking ourselves what this problem might be trying to teach us,
visualizing a future scenario in which the problem has been solved
(and then seeing how it was solved), looking for patterns of
similar problems that have arisen, pretending that we are a novice
who is seeing the situation from a fresh outlook, or asking
ourselves, "If I knew the correct choice, which one would it be?"
Increase the flow of ideas. While brainstorming for a
solution, let your imagination run freely to generate as many
ideas as possible. As the ideas appear, write them without
evaluating their suitability or logic; any analysis or criticism
would disrupt the creativity. We can permit ideas that are wild
and unreasonable; they will be sorted out later.
Let the problem incubate. After we have gathered and studied
the necessary information (through brainstorming and research),
the solution might not emerge immediately. This is the time for
incubation -- letting the problem be mulled over by other parts of
our brain which have special skills in organizing data. We might
say that the problem goes from the conscious mind to the
unconscious, or from the brain's analytical left hemisphere to the
creative right hemisphere. During this incubation period, we might
think about the problem occasionally, but we do this in a
receptive, relaxed, patient, "listening" way, knowing that the
answer will come to us.
