Rethink Outside the Box

I'm working on a "top-secret", personal, side project which we hope to launch in a few months. The project is called "Comrade Share", and through our service we will provide new solutions to several common entrenched problems. In the process, I've come to some interesting conclusions about finding solutions to common problems. This isn't a roadmap to solving all problems, but it is one great way to rethink outside the box. And if the problem is big enough, your solution can change the world. Four simple steps can help us think through the process:

  1. Identify the Constants
  2. Identify Current Solutions
  3. Reevaluate the Constants
  4. Find New Solutions for Deprecated Constants

Identify the Constants

First figure out what the constants are in the equation. What are the limitations and obstacles that make this a problem in the first place? What are the constants that all previous solutions have tried to work around?


So pick a problem you often face. For the sake of this ...
