Here is a problem regarding 'Externalization': it is not so easy, especially at beginning- to get ideas out of your brain and translating it to words and sentences?
- Actually, getting the ideas out is kind of half-solving the problem
- And the other part is getting them inside again, which is too easy
And the best way to translate ideas to words is to Ask Questions
- Keep bombarding your brain with open-ended questions about the specified subject
- The 6 W-questions are (in-order)
- What/who (the identity)
- How much (numbers and shit)
- When (on the timeline)
- Where (on google maps)
- How (the steps-the strategy)
- Why (the reason-the purpose-the goal)
- These are all the questions you can ask
- You don't need to have such answers to all these Qs for every problem you face
- Remember: (Why All The Way Up & How All The Way Down)? This is an example of self-elicitation technique
The more questions you ask, the more you can figure out how to solve problems, plan projects ….etc.
