A little creativity goes a long way to solving your problems. We all know the power of creative thinking but still, find it difficult to create a flow state.
Creativity is aided by first defining the problem you need to solve and then adding constraints to the solution.
Defining the challenge gives you clarity. Adding constraints keeps you focused on the problem.
Define The Problem & Then Apply Creative Solutions
Let’s say your number problem right now is debt. You want to be free of it but don’t know where to start. Instead of looking at it as one big problem, break it down by adding a constraint.
First, look at (for example) your household expenses. You could commit to saving an additional $200 a month to repay debt, I need to restrict my daily spending budget to $30 a day.
Or, you might want to follow a healthier diet and eat organic food without increasing your monthly spending.
If you are a budding writer, you will quickly realize that writing every day is a tricky proposition. A lot of time is spent deciding on what to write about. If you are stuck for writing ideas, you might need to add a constraint to the topics available to you. If you show up at your desk every morning and expect ideas to come to you, writer’s block might strike you sooner than expected. Instead, give yourself a constraint. Today, I am going to write a story about my most embarrassing memory from high school. You will notice how much easier it is to write when you select a specific topic.
Define your problems first. When you have narrowed down a field of action, it is much easier to follow a game plan.
