Free to think 2 – Simple steps for solving problems.
- Believe for every problem there is a solution
- Keep calm. Tension blocks the flow of thought power. Your brain cannot operate efficiently under stress.
- Work at the problem early in the day when your mind is fresh.
- Do not try to force an answer, when you do not have all the facts.
- Keep your mind relaxed so that the solution will open up and become clearer.
- An open mind brings alternative ideas for the solution.
- Explore all the facts: some could be a good starter, or mid size intermediate others are long term solution.
- List all facts and possibilities on paper. Have 2 columns: Separate Pros & Cons put into the appropriate column.
- Go back and review what you wrote and break down the ideas even further. Separate what is workable from non workable.
- This process clarifies your thinking and help you to see an orderly pattern.
- See the problem as objective not subjective.
- Get up, take a 20 minute break. While away do not think – do some physical cleaning. Not mental work.
- Pray about the problem. Talk to God. The solution should always be a win win win for all.
- Let God flash new concepts to your mind.
- Believe in yourself and that you will find the solution.
- Trust in your insight and gut feelings.
- Listen to soft peaceful worship music or read inspirational stories to build your faith.
Continue to follow these steps, then the right answer will develop in your mind at the right time.
