Start systematic problem solving all by yourself
With systematic problem solving, you will reach the solution in a quick, sure and least cost way following a path that usually is not conventional.
It's sure that you can reach the right solution to your problem. Not a speck of doubt should ever cross your mind. You are not helpless.
You have enormous reservoir of mind power that you may not be aware of. Stick to your guns. Think and act. Intelligently. At each step.
No random decisions at all. Think analytically. Think objectively. Learning all the way.
Learn from yourself and also from others. And help others solve their problems. This is the key to progress - any progress. If you solve others' problems, not only others gain, you also gain. Big gains. Your own problem solving and decision making ability gets stronger.
When a problem comes your way, be sure there will always be someone ready to help you make the crucial breakthrough. We have told such a true story in the Real life problem solving article How to Find the troubleshooter to solve a grave real life problem.
This is similar to the situation of your first time Paragliding when you jump off a 2000 feet high rock shelf into free space. There will be someone with you just like the Paragliding pilot accompanying you in your first free fall jump.
You, me and everyone else solve problems, in our own ways. Life is about solving problems, about taking decisions for improving present situation. People have done it through ages. And some of the gifted ones have spelled out how problems can be solved - the process of solving a problem. That is the key. Usually we never look back to analyze how we solved a particular problem in the past.
Once you get hold of a process for solving a problem - understand it, clarify it in your mind, improve upon it and then apply it with full confidence next time such a problem arises.
Reuse. With time, shortly (yes once this understanding and application of problem solving process starts, the way forward is accelerating, things improve fast) you would accumulate enough systematic problem solving abilities to look at any problem with calm and assured confidence.
If you do go for your first Paragliding, you will never forget the wonderful experience of jumping off into space overcoming your initial fear in a few minutes and finally, after a while, safely landing back to the ground. The same way, start solving any problem you face with no fear of failure whatsoever.
After all, if you stop to think, types of problems that we face in our individual lives are not too many. Each of us lives in our own customized world where infinite types of problems won't occur.
Just start enriching your own problem solving techniques and in due time you would be able to face most of the problems in the environment around you with confidence. It is very well within your reach.
In this space, that's what we relentlessly pursue - understanding problem solving process and how to apply the knowledge of problem solving systematically. This is the discipline of systematic problem solving.
