Feynman’s Garden

The Feynman algorithm is a clear method for solving hard problems that can’t be easily looked up or broken down. It involves writing down the problem, thinking deeply, and then writing down the solution. This process allows the brain to connect relevant information and generate insights over time. It’s important to step away from the problem to give your brain space to process. This approach can lead to sudden insights and a deeper understanding of the problem domain. By feeding your brain relevant information and stepping back, you can foster creative problem solving and generate new ideas. The author’s personal experience shows how this method can be effective in practice. The gardening metaphor of thought emphasizes the importance of curating what you feed your mind to produce relevant and insightful ideas.
