But it gets easier when you realize that problems are simply choices.
There’s nothing ‘scary’ about them other than having to make a decision.
Coming from 10 years in the corporate advertising industry, it is drummed into you that ‘No idea is a bad idea’ and this aids creative thinking in brainstorms and other problem-solving techniques.
Whatever you do, do not ridicule yourself for coming up with ‘stupid solutions’ as it’s often the crazy ideas that trigger other more viable solutions.
You don’t give thought to how pressing any distraction is — you just give it attention.
Five minutes, ten minutes., and even an hour sometimes…
When you get back to work — boom — you’ve no idea where you left off or why you couldn’t get your mind and heart into it…Ring a bell to you? When you can’t stay focused at work and are become less productive, your valuable time and effort is gone forever.
And there goes your momentum and peak of creativity.
Have you ever thought of yourself as a problem solver? But in reality, we are constantly solving problems.
And the better our problem solving skills are, the easier our lives are. They can be mundane, everyday problems, or larger more complex problems: Every day, you’ll be faced with at least one problem to solve.
