Something I've been pondering; How does one improve one's out of box thinking and problem solving skills? We refer to them as skills, but how does one practice? #mindhacks

@feoh One thing I've found helps me is brainstorming: I take a notepad, write the problem I've got to solve at the top, and below it write quick summaries of solutions.

I write down any solution that comes to mind that might solve the problem, even if it's not feasible (e.g. "cancel the customer", or "delete it all"). Inevitably, one or two new ideas will pop out, and I'll pursue those :)
