Look at This When You Need Help Solving a Problem

Has there been something on your mind that is just driving you crazy lately? It’s common nowadays to become consumed by stress, and let any problems in your life take over.

With so much going on, you can’t help but run into a bunch of drama from time to time, and that is just the tipping point for most people.

So, I have outlined a process that will help you solve literally any problem you run into.

It may help you get through something now, or it will help you so that one day you can find the strength to overcome it.

Problem Solving Flowchart

The key idea of this flowchart is this:

Instead of worrying and getting stressed out over every little problem, you need to understand that not everything is in your hands and you can’t do everything to resolve an issue.

What good does worrying do when you are powerless to solve a problem? None.

When you know how to solve a problem, then you don’t have a problem anymore. Continuing to stress or worry about it is just causing you a lot of harm for absolutely nothing.

How does this help you?

Do you think this is a proper way to think, or is it too passive?

Let me know in the comments how this idea has impacted you.

I actually don’t view this as being passive. I see a passive way of “solving” a problem would be to complain about it all the time. I’d say this way is active.

So is this the sort of approach you take as well then?

Yes. It is certainly not a practice I’ve been doing for some time though but it is a better one for now and the future. Almost reminds me of living in the mind of minimalism.
