"No effort is required to define or even attain happiness, but enormous concentration is needed to abandon everything else." -- Quentin Crisp


When problems occur, it may sometimes seem difficult to figure out the right approach. Even getting started is hard when you can't seem to narrow the issue to the source, are under a lot of stress, are experiencing a recurrence of the problem or lack support and encouragement for your efforts. While it may seem next to impossible to distance yourself from everything else going on at the same time, when you are trying to let go of problems -- by solving them, ideally -- you first have to let go of everything else.

This doesn't mean that you're being irresponsible by temporarily putting aside other concerns. Indeed, there is a time and a place for most things. This is the time you need to devote exclusively to get past distractions and focus on what to do to get past and subsequently let go of your problems.

It may be helpful to construct a list comprised of the different problems, if there are more than one, that you currently face. This allows you to see on paper what you're potentially dealing with. Next, jot down any method or technique you've used successfully in the past, on this or similar problems. This will give you something to start with when you're searching for a workable approach or solution to the problem you now face. If you need resources or allies, additional time or money in order to successfully overcome the problem, make a note of those as well.

The combined method of listing problems, analyzing resources, suggesting solutions and getting to work on overcoming the problems is the right cadence to getting past these often annoying issues. What's amazing is that you need exert almost no effort to be happy. It's just the opposite when you have to deal with a problem. Just reassure yourself that you can get through this and you will be successful in the long run.

But that’s not all there is to it. Through my blog and Daily Thoughts, I’ll help you navigate life’s curves and find the path to achieving the success you desire.
