How nice would it be, if you woke up each day with answers to your most pressing problems?
The good news is that you can train your brain to do that. What you need to do is:
- Formulate your most pressing problem into a question.
- Pose the question to yourself before bedtime and stop thinking about it.
- Brainstorm the answer right after waking up.
Through this routine, you tap into the power of your unconscious brain, which is hard at work even as you rest. Like in a relay race, your conscious brain hands the baton to its unconscious counterpart and receives it back the next morning.
While these 3 steps are simple, they aren’t easy. Firstly, most people don’t really know what their most pressing problem is. Secondly, they cant stop thinking about it in bed. Further, they lack the discipline to practice this routine day-after-day and train it like a muscle. (Yes – I suffer from all these inadequacies)
