Problem Solving

“If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.”

James Cameron

Most of the effort in problem solving is in firstly correctly identifying the real problem. Once it has been identified, a problem becomes much easier to break down into chunks. Find 15 minutes each day to slowly work through an issue that you have been procrastinating about.

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

Henry David Thoreau

Problems aren’t something to be ignored in the hopes they will disappear. A new problem might be seen as a new opportunity to progress further to the common goal.

“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill

“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”

Jim Rohn

    1. Now that is true, Keith. How often do we set aside a task because it involves a lot of effort, time or enthusiasm we may not have at that moment. Somehow looking at it as an opportunity makes it sound far less daunting!

    1. Thanks for the comment, Laurie. I tend to think there is still some kind of value in all our actions (sometimes we have to look really hard to find it), and that is what I think the quote encourages. If you are a person that overreaches, at least you won’t often suffer the lows of a lack of motivation.

    1. Oh I do like that saying you mention, Dorothy. At times, any one of us can struggle with an incentive to work a little harder, stretch a little further, perservere through tough times, but those tough times make average quite sweet!

    1. I like the thought of a failure being an accomplishment. This puts a whole new slant on how we view a problem or on those moments when things go wrong. Life is a series of accomplishments, it’s only our minds and thoughts that determine if things are positive or negative

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment, Donna. In a world slightly obsessed with success and perfection, I think it is helpful to contemplate a different perspective and quotes can at certain times, can potentially trigger that. Failures are not always something to dread.

  1. Great quotes, if I have trouble with solving a problem, I usually walk away do something else & then bam the answer hits me & the project is done quite quickly compared to the hour or two I spent struggling along. lol

    1. A great strategy. Letting the problem bake for a while is a good plan! Things get clearer in time. Even blog posts become clearer if they sit a while. Do you find that?
