More people have become wealthy, including me, using this idea more than any other method of creative thinking ever discovered. In fact, this technique alone could enable you to gain financial independence. The method is simple. Take any problem or goal that you have and write it at the top of a sheet of paper in the form of a question. For example, if your goal is to double your income over the next 12 months, then you would write, “How can I double my income over the next 12 months?” You then discipline yourself to write at least 20 answers to that question. You can write more than 20 answers if you like, but you must use your discipline and willpower to write at least 20 answers.
