Problem solving is complex. It’s a mental process that we continually put ourselves through, so that we get to sort out our lives. It sounds easy, but in reality it’s far from easy. It very much depends on the problems or issues we’re trying to solve.
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;
- Through our unconscious thinking we’ve already decided we’re going to fail before we’ve even tried. We’re usually the obstacle.
Unless we come to understand the process of how to problem and what it is we’re dealing with, we may never really get the results we want. I use my intuition to problem solve. Intuition is usually based on our feelings, experiences and knowledge that come from our unconscious thoughts.
Intuition allows us to problem solve through solutions that come out of the blue and which are then applied through common sense.
