Life seems to love challenging us!
First, understand many challenges in life aren’t necessarily a challenge in the first place. Pause to examine why you are stuck, and the difficulties carefully and then face them with appropriate test responses. In this manner, you can at times reveal smoother paths and avoid wasting energy on non-problems. Not everything that looks like a problem is a problem.
Focus on Simple Answers
Simple solutions work 80-90% of the time when you get stuck.
In helping others, one hallmark of how I work is to make the process simple. The basic template for reliable solutions comes down to three steps.
- Use kindness as the starting point in determining what is simple.
- Then modestly apply the answer, so it’s possible to change up the solution easily as problems do arise.
- Finally remembering not to prejudge what the final results should look like for your solution.
Strive for simple solutions in your life.
