Subconscious Problem Solving
Years ago, I watched a video about a 14-year old prodigy programmer that “dreams in code”. He mentioned in the video that in his sleep he would dream of the solutions to programming problems he was working on.
I watched this video years ago when I was a teenager and I thought it was a bit silly.
But now, I find myself using the same technique. When I’m working on a problem set or assignment for school and I get stumped on a problem. Maybe I’ll go for a walk, or sleep on it. I’ll let my subconscious work on it.
