Some problems are little more than a reason to spark a conversation.

Spark it. Talk. Bring out the truth.

Keeping Control

Centered problem solvers care about a problem without giving it the power to control them.

They focus, analyze, create, engage, and solve each problem while staying balanced and detached.

Do you care enough about your problems to solve them, without letting them rule you?

-- Douglas Brent Smith

Beyond Pretending

Pretending that there is no problem won't make it go away.

I've tried it. Hiding our heads in the sand only makes it more easy for a problem to sneak up on us and bite us.

Guess we might as well face the problems ahead of us.

Big Opportunity

It's not always fun. It's not usually what we seek. It can create tension in our lives. Still, it's good to know:

Your biggest problem is your biggest opportunity.
