 Start Using Creativity


Have you wondered how many times you thought to yourself that there was no answer to a particular problem that you might have?  How many times have problems left you with no clear solutions?  How many times have you felt like the problems in front of you cannot be solved no matter what you do?

Do you feel like you are at the end of the rope and can’t hang on any longer?  When encountering such colossal problems or obstacles, you may feel like you're hammering against a steel mountain. The pressure of having to solve such problems may be devastating.

With some creative problem-solving techniques you may be able to look at your problem in a different light.  That light might just be the end of the tunnel that leads to possible solutions.


Start with the help of creative problem-solving, you must be open-minded to the fact that there may be more than just one solution to the problem.  You must be open to the fact that there may be solutions to problems you thought were impossible.

Thinking with an optimistic mindset, we can try to be a little bit more creative in solving our problems.

First; maybe the reason we cannot solve our problems is that we have not really taken a hard look at what the problem is.  Trying to understand the problem and having a concrete understanding of its workings is integral in solving the problem. If you know how it works, what the problem is, then you have a better foundation towards solving the problem.

Not trying to make the simple statement of what the problem is. Try to identify the participating entities and what their relationships with one another are. Take note of the things you stand to gain and stand to lose from the current problem.  Now you have a simple statement of what the problem is.

Second; try to take note of all of the constraints and assumptions you have the words of problem. Sometimes it is these assumptions that obstruct our view of possible solutions. You have to identify which assumptions are valid, in which assumptions need to be addressed.

Third; try to solve the problem by parts. Solve it going from general view towards the more detailed parts of the problem. This is called the top-down approach. Write down the question, and then come up with a one-sentence solution to that from them. The solution should be a general statement of what will solve the problem. From here you can develop the solution further, and increase its complexity little by little.

Fourth; although it helps to have critical thinking aboard as you solve a problem, you must also keep a creative, analytical voice at the back of your head. When someone comes up with a prospective solution, tried to think how you could make that solution work. Try to be creative. At the same time, look for chinks in the armor of that solution.

Fifth; it pays to remember that there may be more than just one solution being developed at one time. Try to keep track of all the solutions and their developments.  Keep in mind; there may be more than just one solution to the problem.

Sixth; remember," Two heads are better than one." That one is truer than it sounds. Always be open to new ideas. You can only benefit from listening to all the ideas each person has to say. This is especially true when the person you're talking to has had experience solving problems similar to yours.

And last; be patient. As long as you keep at it, there is always a chance that a solution will present itself.  Remember that no one was able to create an invention the first time around.
