If you disengage from the things you can find the most suitable solution in a much shorter time :)
Read eastern philosophy...
 

 
Such as What? it Comes Down to Tao and the Zen of Doing Even in the West

I studied English and German literature and epistemology as an undergraduate, leadership and combat management in the military and credit and financial analysis in a commercial bank after leaving the military.
The one thing that has struck me about American trained managers is the singular narrowness of their education. Once you begin to venture much beyond their specific field of endeavor, you very soon discover the boundaries of their personal enthusiasms and there isn't much beyond. My guess is that you encounter this cultural impoverishment in Americans even more profoundly than I do.
Eastern philosophy is as good a place to start as anywhere. But, at some point, it all circles back to pretty much the same starting place. The value of the lateral thinking methods of du Bono is that it allows a healthy cultural cross pollination to occur naturally as a function of the diversity of the participants.
As far as letting go of the thing, there are Zen masters who spend their entire lives avoiding solutions.
