Solve a Problem by Not Thinking About It


Here’s a simple way to solve a problem.

Give your brain an assignment to figure out a solution. Then shift gears and do something different. Go for a walk. Work on another project. Or go to sleep for the night.

As you walk or work or wake up, don’t be surprised if the solutions start to flow.

Science backs up the power of how your subconscious mind is better at problem solving.

Give it a try this week.
