A tip to help you get Unstuck

Relocate your creativity muscles

Practicing your ability to think differently can help avoid future Fuzzy Forecaster moments. Here’s how:

  • Look for something to solve. It gives our brains permission to explore options and angles.
  • Take visual notes. Jot down words and phrases all over the page, then go back and connect them with circles and lines. Patterns will emerge.
  • Collect ideas that fascinate you.
  • Research at nonobvious places, like the zoo, a ball game, a bookstore.
  • Give yourself time to toy with an idea.
  • Try your ideas out. If something goes wrong, then you can go back and fix it.
