Do You Have a Problem? We Have a Solution!

It may not necessarily be the one you wan't to hear.  Those types of solutions are often the very one's you need to hear if you're going to solve your problem.  At GrowthTap we prefer to call problems, "challenges."  Whatever you call them they exist and are a sign that you're alive.   We came across a great article called "The Best Way to Solve a Problem"  on

We are into this kind of upside-down thinking advice.   The author writes, "Sometimes the easiest way to solve a problem is to stop participating in the problem. Sometimes the smartest choice is giving up. I don’t think that giving up should be your primary method for dealing with problems. But there are certainly a lot of cases where it just seems to be the most intelligent answer. The more I stop trying to force things to happen, the more they just seem to sort themselves out. The more I let things happen,"   It's a wortwhile read and will get you thinking of new possibilities when facing your challenges.    So go over to then when you're done come back and catch up on some of the latest, greatest, breaking news and cutting edge insights into the world of GrowthTap where you get to tap into your true potential.

    Interesting .....though sometimes its engraved into our hearts and minds that giving up = L O S E R , with a capital "L" even when we might know it may be in our best interest.

    I guess one has to decide "Is it worth it, even if theres a possibility we might not get there? Or is that question alone already smell like failure?

    It must depend on the situation and who the players are.

        I read what he wrote to have a different meaning. I didn't get that he was saying "give up." I got that he is saying give up "being" a certain way. Such as "give up being right," or "give up having to look cool or good." It isn't so much give up on the challenge -- it's about giving up on who we "have to be" to engage with the challenge.
