Thinking = cooking?

Thinking is like cooking.  Sometimes you turn up the heat to expedite cooking but in the end, the food is not as flavorful as it was supposed to be.  Many dishes taste better after long, slow cooking.  Therefore,  whenever you are faced with a problem, it is better to let it "simmer"in your subconscious for a while and go about your normal activities.  Stressing yourself to come up with answers on the spot may work at times, but it can become quite exhausting.  Turn to your subconscious mind for help.  Like a stove in low flame, you can place your problem and finish the "cooking" process more effectively.  Many scientists and artists made their best work and discoveries while doing daily mundane tasks like while on a bath, taking a hike, or just somewhere else other than the desk.  So cook it up, take a break, and find the answers.
