Creative release: Address your assumptions

| March 30, 2014

Sometimes we block ourselves by unknowingly adding constraints to a problem we want to solve. To give yourself more solution-finding elbow room, write out what your assumptions are about the problem at hand and the desired solution. Then step back and look for the biases and beliefs that may not apply. (It may help to ask someone else to review your assumptions as well.)
