Stop solving the problem if you want to solve it

Interesting read by Matthew E. May on how taking a "break" can help us achieve a "breakthrough". Here you have one of the highlights of the article:

"Neuroscientists now believe that the ability to engineer creative breakthroughs hinges on the capacity to synthesize and make connections between seemingly disparate things, and a key ingredient is time away from the problem."

The post starts with another enticing reference to the "less is more" principle: great ideas have something missing.
