The more the problems, the more my lazy ass realizes that one of the most significant challenges to personal growth is to define issues correctly so they could be better solved.
If the steps taken do not lead to real progress or even motivate me to act consistently, I must define the problem correctly. If i misidentify the cause of a problem before trying to fix it, I would gradually fall back to my old, ineffective approach without having anything to show for my efforts.
If I define the problem in a completely different way, I can solve it relatively quickly.
After years of struggling with this method of mental reprogramming and finally giving it up, my most significant breakthrough came in the last few years. I found out I was making real progress, the kind I had been expecting for a long time.
Typically, at this stage of capitulation, I gain perspective and decide to tackle the problem. When I am not actively working on a problem, I stumble across various ways to address it.
I most times, get emails from people who have accepted this pattern of solving problems and has made meaningful progress in their lives.
The principle of doing something takes advantage of the fact that every action is an opportunity to act at the peak of one’s abilities. With small, simple steps, you can build the dynamic to do more, which eventually leads to a much more productive life.
It is a great strategy to create great habits and break bad ones: Focus on achieving the goals you have set for yourself and ensure you achieve them one after the other.
People who need technical assistance have a high goal in mind and stick to it, no matter what goes wrong. Instead of trying to figure out how to do something, start by describing it. You haven’t realized that there is a sure way to that goal, so you have to figure out the perfect approach first.
One of the most common forms of this is when people define their problems as a mental or psychological one. Problems are usually identified as mental, emotional, physical, psychological or a combination of all these.
When people work on one aspect of their personal growth, they define their core problem in a way that it cannot be solved. The cause of the problem lies in our mental programming and, ultimately, I believe that the solution is to improve our programming in some way.
So, because there is a problem you have already solved, you automatically try to apply the same solution to see if it would be solved. You don’t see the problem for what it is but force yourself to apply just any solution, even when you instinctively know it won’t work.
People will react defensively and feel attacked when you don’t go with their one size fits it all approach, but there is nothing wrong with that, and don’t forget that it is a way to gain an advantage. All you need do is to take the right action to solve the problem, not the other way round.
When you meet someone who is actively poisoning your mind, do everything in your power to make them stop, even if it means distancing yourself from them.
We often rely on intuition and hard facts to make quick and effective decisions. Still, communication is vital for the solving of a problem, because identifying the problem, articulating it and defining its space are necessary to address it adequately.
Determination is as important as it sounds because we have to make quick and effective decisions and not waste valuable time and resources by trying to solve our problems in an ineffective manner.
