Strategy 1 - sleep on it
Last night I was trying to do my Christmas mailer, but could I get the
programme to do what I wanted? can I fly? The format was all rubbish and the lines of
text too long and… and… and…..
I was getting so angry and cross and worked up. Then I ran out of time so
rushed off to rehearsals, came home and went to bed. Woke up this morning with
an image in my head of a little box at the bottom of the page which says ‘wrap
text’ and the fact that I had unchecked it. Oh yes so easy.. into the mail
programme and checked the box and hey presto it looked much better.
Now for those of you that received it, it was not the greatest but I did
solve the problem. How.. switched off the conscious brain and let the power of
the subconscious crack the code. Whilst I was getting so cross and angry there
was just too much static in the brain; whilst I was relaxed and asleep… no
static and up comes the answer.
So when you are struggling to see a solution .. just relax and sleep on it, as my mum used to say 'all better in the morning'.
