Have you ever stared at a problem for so long that you finally have to take a break. You get your mind on something else and then bang…you work out the problem without even trying? That happens to me a lot.
I am amazed at the power of our brain to do multiple things at once. Whether we realize it or not, our brains are one of the most advanced super computers ever created. The amazing amount of calculations it can do at once is mind boggling. Don’t believe me…then you haven’t driven in Dallas traffic while talking on the phone.
We forget that we have to give ourselves space. If we get jammed up we have to allow for a diversion to get our brains unstuck. We have to have space to let all the calculations run.
If you have been staring at it for a while, go take a walk. Get some water. Laugh with your family. Before you know it, you will be back on track and have it solved.
