Dan Brown’s Secret to Overcoming Writer’s Block and Solving Plot Challenges

Bestselling author, Dan Brown (Da Vinci Code, Lost Symbol), uses inversion therapy to help solve plot problems and overcome writer’s block by hanging upside down in gravity boots. He claims this method helps shift his entire perspective.

Makes sense. Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” Shifting your perspective can help shift your level of thinking. This approach applies not only to writing but many other areas including business, science, relationship and socioeconomic problems.

Thought for the day:

What are some ways you can shift your perspective in order to shift your level of thinking to help solve a problem? Make a list. For example, if you always hold strategy meetings in a work setting, maybe holding a meeting in a sailboat or castle could help shift perspective.
