Creative Problem Solving – Part 4

And lastly, make an action plan, break it down into manageable chunks on your to-do list and go to your nearest corner shop to buy a scratch card (just in case you win and do not have to bother with real life and boring to-do lists anymore).  Bye for now – I am off to buy a scratch card…or 101.

Come up with a bad metaphor for your problem – like this wall.  Then imagine banging your head against it until your imaginary bruise is the size of a watermelon.  This will distract you from having to think about the issue and you may even forget about it completely as a result of your self-inflicted imaginary amnesia.

Ghosts of Christmas Past and Future


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!  I am taking a break from blogging until January. I need time to  work on expanding my waistline (chocolate!), getting through the pile of books on my bed table, writing a poem a day for the next 30 days (yes, I like my personal challenges and yes, probably 99% of these poems will be haikus) and doodling. 

See ya all in 2014! Have a Merry and Creative Christmas!
