Arrange your time and tasks according to these seven categories, and you'll be a creativity machine - Deepstash
  • Preparation: you’re learning everything you can about the problem.
  • Incubation: you’re allowing your unconscious mind to work on the problem.
  • Illumination: the solution comes to you. It doesn’t tend to happen while you’re sitting at your desk. It might be when you’ve just woken up.
  • Verification: you ensure that the idea meets up to your standards. Does it solve the problems you identified during the Preparation stage?
