Isaac Asimov's approach to problem solving is a unique one. He says that in any given situation let your mind relax after heading a road block while doing any sort of critical thinking. He goes onto mention how a bright man, Archimedes, solved a relatively hard problem for king Heiron II by having a flash of deep insight during a moment of relaxation.
