Solving problems

Problem solving is complex. It’s a mental process that we continually put ourselves through, so that we can sort out our lives. It sounds easy, but the reality is, it’s not always. It very much depends on the problems or issues we’re trying to solve.

Unless we come to understand the process of how to problem solve and what it is we’re dealing with, we may never really get the results we want.

So why do we fail?

  • Sometimes we’re just not fully committed to the problem, depending on the problem We tend to give up when we find the problem too difficult to deal with or solve;
  • We use the same solutions to problem solve instead of looking for a new solution to fix a new problem. Unfortunately, when we use ‘one size fits all’ to solve our problems, we’re less likely to find the right solution;
  • We make assumptions that we’re going to fail before we’ve even tried. We’re usually the obstacle.

I use my intuition to problem solve. Intuition can be described in its simplest form, as an unconscious form of knowledge. Sources of intuition are usually based on our feelings, experiences and knowledge that come from our unconscious thoughts.

My intuition allows me to problem solve through solutions that come out of the blue and which are then applied through common sense.

  1. When a problem arises I usually sit on it for a few days until I decide what to do. I can’t let things go, it would bother me to no end. Good post. xxx

    1. Thanks Lisa. I usually work the other way around. If I have a problem I have to resolve it so that the problem doesn’t begin to stress me.

      Obviously we all deal with our problems differently, I am pleased that what you do works for you.
