Use DO IT to show off your creative talents.
How many times have you got stuck trying to find a creative solution to a problem? It's not always easy to come up with good ideas, and you can fall into many thinking traps along the way.
For instance, you might assume that your first idea is the best one, without having explored alternatives. Or you might generate so many potential solutions that you don't know which one to implement.
This is when it helps to use a problem-solving framework to guide you. In this article, we'll look at "DO IT" – a simple process that you can use to strengthen your creative thinking, and come up with better ideas.
