Centered Problem Solvers Stay Focused and Balanced

Have you ever been blocked from solving a problem by emotions? Anger, sadness, grief, despair, impatience...emotions can make things tough on a problem solver.

Staying centered helps. Keeping balance. Drawing on our core strengths of clarity, courage, creativity, and compassion to keep perspective clear and kind. Any problem exists in a field filled with possibilities. Emotions can poison those possibilities if we lose our way.

The way is clear. Stay focused. Stay balanced. Stay centered.

Breathe. Stretch. See. Stay curious. Relax.

Easier said than done? That's why it takes training and practice.
