Look at A Problem

Stand outside of it. Stand a distance from it, as if you are taking a good photo. That way you will be able to see the wider picture and thus not get so steeped inside of the issue, that you cannot see the solution or solutions to it. There may be several. If you can detach yourself from the intensity you are feeling, then perhaps logic will take over, and the problem can then be solved. What else can you think of to solve problems? Have you a general method or methods of approaching a problem?

Distancing yourself from a problem is a good idea. Sometimes putting it aside and 'sleeping on it' means you wake in the morning with a solution.

Yes sleeping on it is sometimes the only thing we can do Judy thanks.

Detaching is a really good method and, I would add, setting your stronger emotions aside. Acting logical. Not always possible, of course

It is hard. It took me many years to even realize I was acting more on emotion. Thank you moonandstars

I have to take a deep breath and control myself. I tend to panick. But then I compose myself and look for logic. If not in my capacity I just sleep over it.

@Courage7 Sometimes letting it go is the best way to control it.

I am having trouble solving a few problems, I can't seem to detach so that I can focus on trying to find a solution. I pray, I ask for guidance and then I try to study every angle of the problem. I am mostly praying at the moment.

Sometimes other people are in our way too and there is not much we can do about it.

I like to pray. Study the problem. Look at my options and see what I can do to deal with it. Then, I do my best!

If that is a difficult issue I will go to the easy stuff first or ignore it. It looks like I'm in a hurry.

it is like looking at the problem from a bird's eyeview, then dissecting the problem in a worm's eyeview.

That's good advice. I pray for God's direction and sometimes ,"sleeping on it" helps clear my mind.

You have some good points here @Courage7 It seems too many look for what they call problems, while many are just daily events we have to deal with. Have you noticed many seem to look for something to worry about?

Avoiding problems is a very good survival tactic. But life is not usually without a single problem. Thank you Fredo.

Waiting. Sometimes you may meet a problem that you can not solve with any a method, and nothing you can do but wait. As time goes by, you will find that the problem you left behind is no longer a problem for you.

Sometimes I get a bigger problem than it really is as I am so impatient and bad at waiting. Thank you so wise Lyp.

Deciding is perhaps the most important I think Deborah because if we cannot make a decision, then we are flip flopping and can find it hard to get to a conclusion. Thanks so much.

When I face a problem, my first instinct as an infantry soldier is to blast my way through it. Fortunately, over time, I have learned to rein in that impulse.
