Did you know that you could make your difficult tasks more palatable by brainstorming?
Difficult tasks are often the elephant in the workroom in regards to discussion. It’s almost ironic, because the more a difficult concept is talked about, the less difficult it generally becomes – yet it’s also generally the most avoided topic of conversation.
The solution to this is as easy as it is effective; brainstorming. Not only is it an effective way to have everyone talk about that dang elephant, it’s also a good way to fix it – or at least discuss all the potential ways you could. But why are brainstorms so effective for difficult tasks? Why, we’re so glad you asked.
Working Around Difficulties
(And How it Can Help You)
One of the most versatile ways brainstorming can help you overcome difficult tasks is by helping you see your way around them. By its very nature, throwing around ideas is always going to result in several very difficult solutions being found – allowing you to choose whichever is tailor-made to ease the difficulty of your problem.

(And Some Kind Words From Uncle Ben)
As was infamously not said in Spider-Man, ‘with great difficulties, come great responsibilities’. Or, as Spider-Man would have said, had we written it, ‘the more difficult something is, the more you should brainstorm it’.
Because the more different perspectives you put into a brainstorm, the more potential solutions you get out – including the different perspective you’ll have on an issue a couple hours on from it. Giving yourself the opportunity to fully visualise the difficulties of a task allows you to see it for what it truly is – which is generally less scary the longer you look at it.
Conclusion Brainstorming is AWESOME!
While difficult tasks often can’t be put off for very long, spending some of that time in a quality brainstorming session is one premium way to discover any and all potential solutions –
