Decoding Decision-Making: Diving Deep into Generating New Ideas

Share This Post

How’s your problem-solving journey going? 

Today, let’s delve into the second step of the solution process: Generating New Ideas.

Picture this:

You’re sitting in a theatre hall, and there’s a spotlight shining brightly on the main actor on stage.

What do you see? 

Probably just the actor, right?

That’s the spotlight effect – it narrows your focus to one thing, blocking out everything else around you.

In problem-solving, this phenomenon is called Narrow Framing.

It’s like having tunnel vision, where you can only see one solution instead of exploring multiple possibilities.

Here’s the kicker: in this stage, the more, the merrier!

We’re not aiming for just one or two solutions; we want to brainstorm at least 9 different ideas to tackle the problem head-on.

Remember, focus is great for analyzing options but terrible for identifying them.

That’s right; sometimes, being too focused can blind us to other potential solutions lurking in the shadows.

So, do not focus in this step of the decision making process.

Next time you’re brainstorming ideas, ask yourself.

Am I stuck in the spotlight of narrow framing?

Have I considered all the possible angles, or am I unknowingly limiting myself to a handful of options?

Break free from the confines of narrow framing, and let your creativity flow. Together, we can uncover innovative solutions and pave the way for success.

Stay curious, stay open-minded, and let’s explore the endless possibilities together!

Wish you success!
