Dreaming Improves My Thinking

Sometimes when I've been thinking about something for a while, I hit a dead end.  As I'm struggling to move forward, I find myself dreaming.  Somehow, subconsciously, maybe a few days later, these dreams suggest a way forward.

My dreams always tell me where and when I need to be somewhere.

I know what you mean. It seems that our brains work on figuring things out while we sleep. When I was in graduate school for mathematics, I would go to bed thinking about a math proof on purpose, and when I woke up, I often had a break-through on how to write the proof. Strange but absolutely true!
