Any problems when first introduced disturb, command attention, and exist for very simple reasons. 1. they are growth spurter tools (welcomed or not) and 2. to remind us of a part we play and 3. their very existence is for the pleasure of the solution dynamic. Solutions "feed" on problems...
ROARING LION or LITTLE LAMB
Problems in & of themselves can be urgent or petty. Some come with warning (predictability) and others with a shock -effect! Of course mankind plays with the dynamic not because of the problem itself but for our reaction to the change of routine. Consider what bothers me may not bother you
An attorney can help with complex issues like trusts or taxes but they also deal in problem solving and prevention. So do doctors, agents and the most famous of them all customer servicers. We accept problems as part of our journey making them common place. Still, they are a bother
OBVIOUS or NOT?
Some we see or don't & we also tend to see others who have problems without effort. A problem is something operating out of the norm or expected. We learn just from seeing someone else with a problem (real or not) & correct ourselves accordingly. They also serve as object lessons (for now)
WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?
Haven't we said or heard someone say "what is your problem" either with an attitude or challenge or perhaps as a helpful dialog starter? Someone who repeats error or mishandling of something after being corrected invites a harsh WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM meaning snap out of it!
MINOR or MAJOR?
Problem solving can stem from an inconvenience or a 911 situation. In any case solving is invoked & remedy is summoned. Humans tend to over or under state or react in the majority of problem introductions. Its an intruder dynamic problems are. An offset or prep is needed to live with it
We have learned (some better than others) to apply calm, objectivity and awareness as a starter approach finding that it works well. Imagine calling a plumber for a pesky leak or a burst pipe? How about an attorney for advice or defense against accusation? CPA question or audit? Stay calm
Isn't getting insurance our approach to an expected potential problem? How about dental work? Health care in general? What about car maintenance? Having police or fire people on standby? Self-care? Consider too a Real Estate agent who will make sure a transaction goes well, on track all the way to close.
VACATIONS or RETIREMENT
When one is vacationing, the expectation is problem-free. Same for retirement too. As we age and journey, we learn to create without effort a safe return-scenario consistantly as our preference. Having a family or responsibilites even amplifies this. Problem-free, as we know it, is wanted but not attainable.
THE POST TITLE
Notice the intrigue from the post title and how it catches your eye and puts butterflies, senses and brain-alerts on standby as we go toward and wonder just what is the problem? We are fascinated & at the same time repelled. If you pause, you will see how ingrained this is in the human journey
INTERESTING TO NOTE
How a problem can affect a person or a group bears looking into. One person has only their problem to deal with (or not) while two people takes on another dynamic. How about communties? Cities? Countries? The world? It is well to first start with you & then advance.....
Problems by their very nature have & are assigned a very short lifespan. They just are not welcomed by the LIFE dynamic but tolerated & used for purposes. Short or long term, they either terminate or we do with the end result being problem gone. Stay vigilante until the next one
NOTE: Some people excel in problem-solving by nature. Gifted and in demand these people are
Imagine a world without solutions? Chaos comes to mind along with suffering & torment. How about a world without problems? We simply cannot relate but dream of a heavenly place and existence where being carefree is the default always and without end. Until then, carry-on....
