Divide and Conquer

Lidor Wyssocky

Some challenges are overwhelming either by their size and complexity or simply because they deal with a domain new to us.

One strategy we can use to come up with innovative ways to address such a challenge is to divide it into more manageable or familiar parts.

Try thinking of different aspects or traits of the challenge. Address each of them separately even if by definition none of the ideas you come up with will solve the entire problem. You can later use the ideas you gather as input for thinking about the more complex challenge.

When you practice with seempli, you can do the same for each creative challenge you are playing with. Try to break it down to its traits or different perspectives. The diversity of Insights you will come up with is an indication of your success.
