As with most problem-solving techniques, it's important to allow ideas to flow without judging them initially. Don't stifle creative process. Evaluate your ideas later, when you're done with this part.
The Problem Solving Word List
You can create your own list of words. Use adjectives, descriptive phrases, and words that can change your perspective. These could include following:
What if it was... larger, smaller, farther away, closer, sooner, later, easier, more difficult, higher, fat, rich, short, black, certain, hopeless, newer, boring, casual, subtracted from, cheaper, common, divided, more interesting, extravagant, subtle, or fun?
