When we create problems, we can often be in a state of mind that is not conducive to making smart decisions–which is why we made the mistake in the first place. So why, then, do we bring the same mindset in when solving the problems?
Next time you have make a mistake or have a problem to deal with, try to change your state of mind. Change your perspective. Alter your point of view. Shake your thinking. Do whatever you can to take a fresh look at the problem. Equip yourself with new eyes to see both the problem and the solution. It’s your best chance at solving it.
