Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Solving Impossible Problems

Solving Impossible Problems



Motivational Power Quote


Solving Impossible Problems


"All it takes is one idea to

solve an impossible problem."

Robert H. Schuller   



As I see it. . . . . . . .

Solving impossible problems  

When we're faced with what is considered to be an impossible problem look for the most desired solution.   

Review the situation and determine that best strategies available to resolve the problem.  As we think about solving the problem an idea will surface and that idea becomes the basis for resolving the problem. 

When faced with a problem focus on the solutions and take the corrective action to resolve the issue.

That is good advice that we can all use!

Dare to try without fear of making a mistake. And set out to make lots of mistakes, learn lessons by trying to get up the hill as many times as it takes. Edison spent 5000 tries to get a filament that would last in the first light bulb..which was carbon on cotton thread. Glad he did not throw in the towel at 4999 or earlier. No failure...just determination and seeing there is a way to make it happen but rolling up your sleeves, holding your tongue just right to hit the target.

Lou, it is amazing what one can achieve if he simply stops and thinks for awhile....too often people too quickly give up!

Just one.  At one employer years ago I received awards for several years in a row for being an outstanding suggester.  You can turn a company around with just one idea.

The hardest part in solving an impossible problem is to get yourself to believe the problem is really not "impossible" to solve =)

And pinpoint how the situation can be avoided in the future...

The right idea!  Yes!  An excellent reason to brainstorm when we need to solve a problem.
