Before you start asking for help, you should be able to answer four basic, simple questions.
4 Rules for Problems
What is the problem?
What is the CAUSE of the problem?
What are the possible solutions of the problem?
What SOLUTION do you suggest?
When you know the answers to these questions, you can probably solve the issue yourself. At least if you still need help, you can share the information with the person you are seeking help from. If you can use these simple questions, it will change your life and help you solve problems much faster.
Answering these questions, you will get to the root of the problem quicker. If the problem started 10 years ago, it will take longer to fix.
When you write down problems and solutions, you can move faster to fix issues.
Andy likes to read “First Things First” and “How To Stop Worrying and Start Living” to help him find solutions faster. He loves Covey’s “four quadrants” to help decide how he spends his time. You have to stay focused on the things that matter and delay or put off the unimportant tasks. Reading those two books will help reinforce your behaviors or explain what you are doing incorrectly.
George Bernard Shaw quote on Quality of Life
“This is the true joy in life … being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one … being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy … I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live
Oliver Wendell Holes said, “I wouldn’t give a fig for the simplicity on this side of complexity; I would give my right arm for the simplicity on the far side of complexity.”
William James on action from “As A Man Thinketh”
“Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by repelling the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling which is not.”
“… Thus, the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if you cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and to act and speak as cheerfulness were already there.”
FTD – Fool Things I’ve Done. Figure out what you did wrong, what you did right and what you can improve on … that’s how you get better. Review your day at night. That’s how you improve.
Ben Franklin was very good at this. He hated wasted time, stewing over stuff that didn’t matter and arguing and contradicting people. He fought those things his entire life.
Be open to criticism and be willing to criticize yourself. We are all wrong for at least five minutes a day; the key is to try to keep it to five or less.
Most of what we worry about is not even in our control. Have faith that it will be OK, especially if you don’t make it worse. Don’t be afraid to pray about it. Many people find the confidence of action through the power of prayer. Prayer is an active force to create motion. It is the first force of action.
Prayer, action, doing and friends are the ingredients you need to get through the storms of life.
