Ways of doing things

#CreativityHacks : #24

If we do something repeatedly a very strong pattern is established in the brain.

If we disturb this pattern then we will open up new possibilities.

Try writing down some of the things that you do repeatedly and how you approach them. Could there be other ways of doing these? Try them out and see what happens.

I was watching a child doing some jigsaws over a period of time. They always started by finding the edge pieces and assembling them before starting on the rest of the jigsaw. A good strategy but when they came across a jigsaw that had all black edges this strategy was by no means the best but they used it anyhow.
