Are you an expert in something? Do you have deep experience in a particular area?  If so, you have an opportunity to see structure where others see nothing. 

Take some time to try and order the key items in your area of expertise.  Draw a diagram.  Add some relationships. Make a mind map. 

Consider in what way adding another dimension might change that picture.

Let’s start with something meaningful.  More than five minutes, but if you’re the deep-thinking type you’ll get a kick out of it.
