After selling more than 100.000 copies of ‘Huh?!’ in the Netherlands, we finally translated our Dutch bestseller in English.
This book is about the transition from a yes-but to a yes-and way of thinking; from thinking in terms of problems to thinking in terms of opportunities. When we approach a problem with this orientation, novel solutions can sometimes be surprisingly easy to discover. Looking at a problem from a new angle, even just a quarter-turn, can lead to a big insight, with so little effort. We don’t have to fight our problems; we can transform them into opportunities. We can make them our allies.
The art of turning problems into opportunities can be learned. It’s a type of psychological jujitsu. The technique this book introduces is called Omdenken in Dutch, which you could translate as flip-thinking. It not only leads to a solution to an existing problem, but opens new vistas of possibility. As a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly, a problem is flip-thought into a beautiful solution. This leads to a paradox: the more problems we confront, the better.
