Boost Your Ability to Think on Your Feet

Train Your Brain to Think Better and More Creatively
in Unexpected Situations

Each short, edge-of-your-seat story in "Outsmart the Unexpected" unfolds an unusual, no-time-to-lose, and sometimes life and death predicament, and then challenges you to come up with a solution to help one of the characters out the situation they suddenly find themselves in.

Use them to develop your creativity, strengthen your ability to think on your feet, respond on the spot with confidence when under pressure, and make decisions which will be successful.

In some, you may need to suspend your disbelief to play along. Some will make your head spin. Others may make your heart pound. Still others will make you go hmmm. But all will challenge you to think outside your comfort zone, to look for solutions from different angles and not necessarily limit yourself to what you see and what the obvious solution could be. They will stretch your mind and help you to develop your ability to formulate best possible solution in situations where you must react quickly and there's little available information to work with.

Fluid intelligence is what allows a person to comprehend implications, reason and structure ideas quickly, and think abstractly. It springs into action when a person is faced with a problem or situation they have never come across before. But, if the mind is out of shape when the unexpected arrives at 200 miles per hour, it can sputter or even stall.

Perhaps you came home and walked right into a drama. Outsmart the Unexpected is a fun way to exercise your mind and jump start your ability to think and react quickly, especially in situations where things are happening very fast. Use them to develop the skill to creatively solve problems when they suddenly arise.

In today's rapidly changing world, those who can most easily adapt and find winning solutions to life's sudden, unexpected changes with sometimes only imperfect, sketchy information, will be the ones to not only just survive, but to thrive.

Dive into the unexpected and bring your creative side along with you!
