Do you have any problems?
I sure do. Tons of them!
Everyone has problems. You might even call them “challenges” or “puzzles” or “opportunities”.
I use an incredibly complex, patent-pending 3-step methodology for dealing with them:
Everybody gets step 1. Most people know their problems.
Then then add:
Step 1.a) Worry about the problem.
Step 1.b) Complain about the problem.
Step 1.c) Make up excuses for not addressing the problem
I call this the WCE problem-solving methodology – pronounced “wuss” ;)
I have news: WCE does not work. They are unnecessary steps.
A few people get to step 2, the planning stage, but never complete that step.
What about step 3: Doing – the one that really matters? Hardly anyone ever makes it there. They’re still too busy cranking out excuses.
So next time you come across a problem, just remember the 3 steps – and don’t add any extra ones!
IPD: Identify. Plan. Do.
