5 Ways to Solve Big Problems


Big problems can be overwhelming and even debilitating. Try these techniques for stealthily attacking them like a ninja.

  1. Simplify: Break the problem in to small, manageable chunks. Remember, baby steps still count.
  2. Modify/Adapt: Build a temporary solution for only one part of the problem.
  3. Reframe: View the problem as a unique opportunity or look at it from another angle.
  4. Innovate: Build a creative solution that works for you.
  5. Sleep: There is more research coming out about how important sleep is in information processing. If you feel stuck, don't force it. Sleep on it.
