Pre-Obvious


The idea of the wheel now seems oh-so-obvious and yet at one time it wasn't. Once you get past trying to duplicate legs, then you are closer to the mark, and some wise individual or group made that move.

In doing so, they left one realm and entered another.

It is a heady atmosphere - when you see something which others have missed - and doing so requires a willingness to break free from old assumptions and to ask new questions.

That's why an Assumptions List can be so valuable. Jot down your assumptions and then review them. See what stands out.

You may find a wheel.
