Use the “10-minute Storm” exercise to come up with solutions to a problem:

  • Define the problem that you want to solve. 
  • Grab a pen and a piece of paper, not your computer keyboard.  
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes.  
  • Write whatever comes to mind about the problem for the full 10 minutes. If your mind is blank, write “I don’t have a thought right now.” Just keep writing.  
  • Analyze what you have written. Circle the points that stand out. Look for patterns and connections. Doing so will lead you to the solution.
