“Imagining the bizarre” is one problem solving technique. Shopping networks and the internet allow for people to get their very own personalized store at their home, although this idea might have sounded bizarre at the time. You may be able to solve a lot of problems if you would just consider the ideas that you sidelined earlier, branding them as “bizarre”. How do u think the “Wheelpacker” was created? As backpackers feel exhausted while carrying heavy packs, someone had the "crazy" idea, "What if backpacks had wheels?" and the rest is history.

You should first think of some bizarre solutions or ideas connected to the issue at hand. Then just let your mind ponder on then for a while and see what comes out.

Things like….make too many promises, inadequate sleep, be constantly interrupted, and be indecisive about many things, and so on. These causes and more can probably give you and insight on how u can decrease it: reduce the promises, increase your amount of sleep, block out the interruptions, and take the small decisions now, and do away with them, and so on.

Increase customer base? What can we do to scare them? The argument that I am trying to put across is looking at only the problem with a view of "how do I solve it?" you might draw up solutions established on your hidden assumptions. If we consider the earlier example of stress and think that the cause is only having too many things to do, you may blind yourself to other solutions out there.
