seven step method that you can use for
the rest of your career to deal
effectively with any problem that comes
along it's like a recipe that you can
use in the kitchen that will bring you
an excellent dish every single time step
1 define the problem clearly what
exactly is the problem
get the facts get the real facts not the
apparent facts or the obvious facts but
the real facts of the situation it's
amazing how much time and energy is
wasted every day attempting to solve
problems when the people involved are
not even clear what the problem is in
the first place step 2 ask what are all
the possible causes of this problem how
and why did it happen sometimes this
exercise alone will suggest a solution
and remember there's a direct
relationship between the quantity of of
reasons that you come up with it's
understanding the origin of the problem
and the likelihood that a solution will
pop out step 3 ask what are all the
possible solutions the more possible
solutions you can come up with the more
likely it is that you will come up with
the ideal solution step number four make
a decision any decision is usually
better than no decision at all in fact
80% of problems should be solved the
moment they come up only about 20% of
problems need time and deliberation and
extra research step number 5 assign
responsibility for carrying out the
decision who exactly is going to do what
and when and to what standard if it's
you determine when you're going to do it
and to what standards you're going to
achieve it step number six set a
schedule of reporting and a standard to
measure whether or not the decision has
been successful a solution without a
standard or deadline is really not a
solution at all it's merely a discussion
and step number seven tasks yourself or
someone else with taking definite action
to implement the solution and resolve
the problem
remember action is everything the more
you focus on solutions the smarter you
become and the better solutions you come
up with the people who are the best at
problem solving are the highest-paid and
fastest promoted in any organization and
fortunately enough problem solving is a
skill that you can learn with practice
