Obstacles standing in the way of progress often seem insurmountable. Leaders who remain adaptable, flexible, and pause to give themselves time to assess options increase their likelihood of breakthroughs. And very often, the solution to the problem sits within the problem itself.



√ The seeds of a problem’s solution are usually contained in the problem itself.

√ Effectively problem solvers work within the constraints of limited time and budget and ask a question of curiosity: what can we do differently right here with what we have?

√ Overcoming obstacles, according to author Ryan Holiday, requires that we take three steps:
1. Change our perception of the problem — our attitude and approach to it.

2. Use our energy and creativity to uncover the opportunity within the problem

3. Cultivate and maintain an inner will to overcome setbacks.
