Write down a statement of the problem

Define the problem carefully to make sure you are solving the real problem and to help engage your unconscius and conscious minds to the problem.

Mind Focus 1) Ask why the problem exists. This may lead to a broader statement of the problem.2) Try to subdivide the problem into smaller problems. This may lead to a narrower restatement of the problem. Mind Grip Write down at least three two-word statements of the problem objective. Select the combination of words which best represents the precise problem you want to solve. Use this to write a new, more optimal and effective restatement of the problem. Mind Stretch List the goals, objectives and/or criteria which the solution of the problem is to satisfy. (Think of the obstacles which must be overcome.) Then stretch each goal, objective or criterion and write down any ideas which are stimulated.
