The Difference Between a Problem and a Solution is One Simple Question

Whenever you see a problem, know that there is always a solution sitting right there next to it.

If you don't see it, that's probably because you're choosing to obsess about the problem

Obsessing makes you blind to everything else.

Here's a simple way to find solutions faster.

Whenever you come across a problem, click into 'problem solver' mode by asking yourself this one question, "What am I going to do about that?"

This one question does two things quickly; first, it makes you start thinking about solutions, and second, it makes you stop thinking about the problem.

It gets your brain out of thinking mode and moves it into doing mode.

Why is that important? Because thinking about the problem won't solve the problem, but thinking about what you can do about the problem will.

Now stop reading blog posts and go DO something! ;)
