Life is full of problems.
We deal with problems every single day. For example:
- Is it better to cut the top off a boiled egg with a knife or smack the top with a spoon?
- Do I prefer the ticking of an analogue watch or the beeping of a digital watch?
- Would my room look better decorated with antique or modern furniture?
- What’s the quickest way to get from point A to point B?
- Should I go to skiing in Europe or laze around on the beach in the Mediterranean for a weekend break?
For most people (myself included!), the last problem is one that we really wouldn’t mind having.
Some problems are easily dealt with while others can result in wars and senseless tragedies.
Faced with so many problems in our day to day lives, what’s interesting to note is the variety of solutions you can find to help deal with our problems.
In our modern inter-connected world, you only need to type in a few words into a search engine to find an answer (or even several answers) to a problem that you had. When you do a search in Google or any other search engines – you do so because you have a Problem. The results returned then present you with a list of “potential” solutions. The most fashionable and contextually relevant solution is presented at the top of the list but, perhaps, the question we should be asking is:
Is this solution really the most appropriate solution to your problem?
With “problems” being a central part of our day to day lives, when was the last time you stopped to consider the question:
“What is a problem”?
In this series, I’ll be giving you a very simplistic Model of Problems that will enable you to understand personal problems and demonstrate how it’s possible to find solutions. You’ll discover how the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has provided techniques for the elimination of personal problems and I’ll give you an insight into a few NLP techniques and explain why they’re effective.
