I didn’t like Dan Brown’s book Angels and Demons. The plot was too repetitive for me, and it is not true that man can direct and limit God’s plans. But I liked this line from the female hero. Cornered by the bad guy, she said to herself, “Remember! Remember the answer to this!”
Can you hear what she’s doing?
Rather than ask her mind for an answer to what looked like an unsolvable problem, instead she told her mind simply to remember it. The supposition that she knew the answer created the idea that the answer already exists in her mind, thus eliminating the hopelessness and the churning mind.
I’ve tried it.
“Remember! Remember the answer to this!” has eased my mind and freed my problem-solving every time I’ve tried it. Try it. Tell me if it works for you.
The character has another problem-solving technique I’ll describe tomorrow.
Do you have a favorite problem-solving or mind management technique that calms you down and helps you solve problems? Please ‘Comment’ and tell us about it.
