Very often people turn any issues over and over in their minds without finding an innovative solution for them. The explanation is that they are likely to solve all problems in the same way that means making a pros and cons list or calling somebody for advice. Here are advices to help you come up with unexpected answers for just about any questions in your life.
Pretend the problem is not very important to you
Try to mentally distance yourself from the issue by imagining you are solving it for someone else and it is not your problem or the deadline is not as close as it actually is. This will help you take in the large picture and open your imagination to approaches you possible have missed if you were thinking too narrowly. Instead of getting caught up in you can see the issue as a whole and think about it reasonably or calmly. For example, compare how open you feel to anything while dreaming about a project that is months away with how panicked you are when it is the night before you have deadline. Experts call this approach as creating psychological distance.
