"Three Step Problem Solving Strategy"

Step 1

Step 1... is accepting the existence of a problem...

Accepting the existence of a problem is necessary before you can find an answer or a solution... If you're denying the existence of a problem or are avoiding the problem an answer or a solution is not possible...

So, think about the problem and write it down when it is clear in your mind.

Step 2

Step 2... is to think of the problem as a question...

A problem is a question proposed for consideration or for a solution....People often confuse a problem with a difficult situation, set of circumstances, or an obstacle... But the problem isn't the situation or obstacle you are facing... The problem is a question of how you're going to respond to that difficult situation, set of circumstances, or obstacle...

Remember... A problem is a question.

Step 3

Step 3...is to think about the difficult situation, obstacle, or set of circumstances you're facing in the form of questions...

Questions about what you might not understand... Questions about ways you could respond... and questions about the effects of your response... Questions like "why is"... or "why are"... and describe the situation or obstacle you're facing... or "what can I do about "... and "what will happen if".... The number of questions will depend on the situation... After you've written down all the questions you can think of... Take time in answering each one... 

When you've answered the questions you'll have a better understanding of how you're going to respond to the situation, obstacle or circumstances... you will have decided how to solve the problem...

"I hope that this strategy will help you to solve many personal, business and relationship problems during your lifetime."
