I said “thinking around” because I can’t come up with a better translation for the non-existent Dutch word “omdenken”.
Thanks to one of the people from the site mentioned below for providing a more logical translation: flipthinking.
I got this from here, but it’s a Dutch site, so I can’t really get away with posting the link and telling you to read it. So, mayor credit to them, check ’em out if you speak Dutch.
— Waiting: Reality sometimes is so complex, that it’s best not to take action.
— Accepting: Accepting reality for what it is, and seeing if you can do something with it.
— Ratifying: Seeing what goes right, and being able to ratify that.
— Respecting: Humans are prepared for everything, except for being taken seriously.
— Pushing: By continuing on, you create new possibilities.
— Focussing: Focussing on what you want instead of what you don’t want.
— Backwards thinking: Taking not the problem, but the possibility as a starting point.
— Eliminating: Stopping with that what (no longer) works.
— Importing: Not fighting your enemy, but making him your ally.
— Collaborating: What do you want, that your enemy wants too?
— Seducing: Using the desire of the other to create new possibilities.
— Displaying: Consciously showing what you would normally hide.
— Switching roles: Tilt the pattern by swapping roles.
— Disrupting: Is something a problem? Change the rules of the game!
— Reversing: By “reframing” the situation a problem becomes a possibility.
I do apologize for my terrible translational skills. Still, I hope you learned something today.
