Heuristic A heuristic technique (/hjʉˈrɪstɨk/; Greek: "Εὑρίσκω", "find" or "discover"), sometimes called simply a heuristic, is any approach to problem solving, learning, or discovery that employs a practical methodology not guaranteed to be optimal or perfect, but sufficient for the immediate goals. Where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical, heuristic methods can be used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution. Heuristics can be mental shortcuts that ease the cognitive load of making a decision. Examples of this method include using a rule of thumb, an educated guess, an intuitive judgment, stereotyping, profiling, or common sense. More precisely, heuristics are strategies using readily accessible, though loosely applicable, information to control problem solving in human beings and machines. Example Here are a few other commonly used heuristics, from George Pólya's 1945 book, How to Solve It: Psychology Well known Lesser known

Now that's a staircase: 11 eye-popping designs Hawaiian-themed The stairs leading to the master bedroom in this contemporary condo in Wailea, Hawaii, were designed to look like grass blowing in the wind and to mirror the softness of the rest of the home.

inspiration monday i love to letter quotes in my art journal, but this past weekend i was inspired to do something a little different.....instead of writing the quote in my book, i decided to create a little book just for the quote! i started with two 3" x 6" pieces of torn watercolor paper and randomly painted a few splotches on both sides using watercolors. then i folded each piece of paper in half and started lettering and drawing on the pages. once i had everything the way i wanted...... i sewed the pages together using linen thread...... and voila.....a dreamy little book.....
