Are you having a hard time finding solutions and brainstorming is not working?
Then you should try the reverse brainstorming technique!
Reverse brainstorming is based on our natural tendency to see problems easily rather than finding solutions.
How does it work? Just follow these 3 simple steps:
1. Start brainstorming all the ways you can make your plan go wrong
2. Write all these problems in a piece of paper
3. When you are ready, it´s time to start thinking of all the ways you could create the reversed effect.
This technique has two great advantages: it is easy to work with and increases effectively the amount of ideas that might lead to solutions faster
So next time brainstorming doesn´t work, go for the reveresed technique
