Looking for answers? Too much structure and minute to minute intensity can actually shut down the creative portion of your brain from where answers come. Plant the question with which you are struggling in the back of your mind, and then forget it for a while. Lighten up and take some time off. Do something you really enjoy doing. Sleep on it.

As you relax, your subconscious will be freed up and keep working for you. The answer will come when you least expect it, sometimes at three in the morning. When it comes, write it down fast so it doesn’t slip away.
