Here’s a 3-step approach when you’re stuck for a viable solution to a challenge:

  1. State the assumptions being made about the challenge.
  2. Specifically remove each assumption, one at a time.
  3. Ask and answer, “Without that assumption in place, what new possible approaches are there to the challenge?”

This technique can be just the thing to eliminate the stumbling blocks you’re facing.
