How to Solve a Problem
- To solve a problem, first deal with your problem about the problem.
- To solve a problem, first deal with how poorly you treat the problem.
- To solve a problem, first deal with correcting your approach to the problem.
- To solve a problem, first deal with your problematic reactions and relationship to the problem.
Why Is Your Problem with Your Problem Most Important?
Your problem with your problem makes your problem worse by:
- Adding to it.
- Resorting to blaming and damning instead of problem-solving.
- Resorting to anxiety or depression instead of coping.
- Trying to change its reality.
- Trying to control its reality.
- Trying to deny or suppress it.
- Or other ineffective methods that merely serve to continue and increase the problem from the outside.
Problem-Solve the Problem’s Problem
- Your problem with your problem is your problem’s best friend and supporter.
- Counter-intuitively, you’ll often find that your problem with your problem is just like it.
- Trying to fix a problem without first fixing the main problematic responses to it is like trying to roof a house before building that house.
- If you try to focus on a problem without first addressing the problematic way that the problem is treated, then despite your best efforts, you will fail to fix the problem.
- Working on the problems about a problem first is a systems approach versus a symptomatic approach that ignores the related and sustaining problems that occur along with a problem.
