Before starting anything, ask yourself why you should do it.
With your answer, there will be that output you so desire — and so you value the task.
It helps to first, acknowledge the problem; and then, move your focus to a solution-oriented mindset where you keep fixed on what the ‘answer’ could be, rather than lingering on ‘what went wrong’ and ‘who’s fault it is’.5 Whys is a problem solving framework to help you get to the root of a problem.
By repeatedly asking the question “why” on a problem, you can dig into the root cause of a problem, and that’s how you can find the best solution to tackle the root problem once and for all.
You don’t give thought to how pressing any distraction is — you just give it attention.
Five minutes, ten minutes., and even an hour sometimes…
Have you ever thought of yourself as a problem solver? But in reality, we are constantly solving problems.
And the better our problem solving skills are, the easier our lives are. They can be mundane, everyday problems, or larger more complex problems: Every day, you’ll be faced with at least one problem to solve.
Problem solving is important because we all have decisions to make, and questions to answer in our lives.
Amazing people like Eleanor Roosevelt, Steve Jobs, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., are all great problems solvers.
