Pick a sticky problem and try to reframe it.

The most common example used to illustrate an elegant reframe is the example of the slow elevator. Guests complain about the slow elevator? . . . Don’t spend tons of money to get a faster elevator . . . Instead, put mirrors up!

The easiest way to reframe the problem is to ask an outsider. They won’t have the solution, but they’ll likely ask a question that, in their ignorance of the details of the subject matter, actually illuminates some new way of looking at it. Find an outsider, explain your problem briefly, and see what questions they ask.
