Rearrange Your Problem's Parts

Does your problem feel all mixed up? Maybe it's got YOU all mixed up, too.

Your problem may be made of parts begging to be rearranged.

Altered, modified, changed, rearranged. When you analyze your problem, see if that's the deal: mixed up perfectly good but confusing pieces.

Find the parts. Rearrange them. That might be all that you need.

Play A Winning Game

Who wins when you solve a problem?

Your answer to that question likely defines whether or not you've actually solved the problem.
Any solution that creates a loser is likely not sustainable. It's a never-ending game.

Problem solving is a game that can be played with everyone winning.

That's probably the only way to really put an end to the problem.

Could that take longer? Yes. Is it more likely to succeed? Yes, and yes, and yes!
