To solve problems effectively you must do the following.
1. Manage your emotional state-avoid “overwhelm.”
Learn to associate massive pain to the state of being
overwhelmed; associate pleasure to solving the problem.
2. Write the problem on paper. Spend no more than 20%
of the time defining it-80% of the time should be spent
on the solution.
3. Come up with your best plan for handling the challenge
and act upon it as quickly as possible.
4. Notice what you’re getting from your current actions.
5. If what you’re doing isn’t working, change your approach.
Develop more flexibility by asking yourself, What would
6. Find role models and get their answers.
7. Change your beliefs about what problems are-call them
challenges-they are opportunities for you to grow.
Use the five problem-solving questions to put yourself
in a positive, resourceful state for finding effective solutions.
THE PROBLEM-SOLVING QUESTIONS :
1. What is great about this problem?

3. What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?
4. What am I willing to no longer do in order to make it
the way I want it?
5. How can I enjoy the process while I do what is necessary to
make it the way I want it?
