Overwhelm That Problem

That problem won't stand once you throw everything you've got at it.

Focus, Center, Solve.

-- Doug Smith


No Judgement Necessary

I try not to judge other people's problems by my own problems.

We're different.

Besides, no one elected me judge.

How about you?

-- Doug Smith



When You Ignore A Problem

You can only ignore your problem until it becomes somebody else's problem.

Then you've REALLY got a problem...

Talk About It

Sometimes it's not even the words we say when talking about a problem that leads to a solution but rather the act of talking about it.

Problems Connecting People

Do you ever think about how problems can bring people together.

We would not choose the problem, and in many cases would not even choose to interact with the people involved, yet when we remained focused on understanding and collaboration, the problem can bring people together in ways otherwise unavailable.

We can grow individually as we work collaboratively.

Think of problems as a way of connecting people who would otherwise disconnect.

It will help you to solve the problem, and in the process, you'll meet some rather neat people.
