Problems can overwhelm us to the point that we become paralyzed. We get stuck in the problem and can live there for a long time. Sometimes years! Think about the small business owner who has built a successful business but gets stuck at a certain revenue level and can’t seem to move past it. The problem is not the problem. The problem is how we view the problem. Because we see this as a huge problem we get emotionally overwhelmed and assume that we need to make a big change to solve it. Sometimes big problems need small solutions. Overweight- stop eating out for lunch. Your business isn’t growing- contact 1 old client a day. Not attracting enough leads-tell 1 person a day about your business (I know a coach who used this strategy to successfully build a full practice). Can’t get focused- spend 15 minutes a day being focused on 1 long- term idea that you want to work on. (that’s 90 hours in a year). There are hundreds of ways to solve any problem. The key- think small!
