There are times when facing a challenge or problem when we are completely stuck. We go over and over the possible strategies but none seem to solve the issue. I have found that stepping aside and using one of the four creative alternatives presents better choices.


  1. Go for a walk and have an internal conversation. Walking removes you physically from the traditional pattern of problem-solving.
  2. Take a shower. Not only is this a time to test out your singing voice but also is a time of relaxation and new thoughts always seem to appear.
  3. Briefly meditate and ask your subconscious brain to assist you in finding new strategies.
  4. Just before you go to sleep present the challenge to your subconscious brain.
