Never pass up an opportunity to CHANGE the question
Often we cannot find the solution to a problem simply because we are asking the wrong questions. We get so stuck in the way we word the problem that we make it next to impossible to come up with a solution. By changing the question we open up whole new possibilities. For example, if we change the question from “how do we build more jails to handle prison overcrowding” to “how do we make it so we only need one jail?” The change in the question sets our minds off on new routes and new possibilities that the original question never made possible.
Next time you are stuck for a solution, try changing how you state the problem.
