According to ancient prophecy, whoever could untie the "Gordian Knot" was destined to become King of Asia. All who tried failed to solve this strangely complicated puzzle. Then Alexander the Great had a turn. After fruitless attempts to find a starting point, he was stymied. Finally, he said, "I'll just make up my own knot-untying rules." He pulled out his sword and sliced the knot in half. Asia is fated to him. Most advances have come about when someone challenged the rules and tried a different approach. What spatial rules can you challenge in your problem? What time rules can you challenge? Financial rules? Design rules? Social rules? How would that change things? What rules would priest challenge in your problem? A school teacher? A baker? A politician? A beautician? A musician? A professional wrestler? A mime? A carpenter? A heart surgeon? An accountant?
