Putrepparttar 146977 Solution into Practice and Monitorrepparttar 146978 Consequences

Once initiated,repparttar 146979 consequences must be monitored and adverse occurrences identified and controlled. Some changes might be necessary, especially for unexpected events. Alternatively, and only as a last resort, you may find you have to choose another from your list of possible solutions. Whatever happens, you will almost certainly have your problem under control, maybe not solved, but manageable.

Alternative Problem-Solving

An extremely useful tip fromrepparttar 146980 late Joe Karbo, American motivational writer and entrepreneur, is to delegaterepparttar 146981 problem. To your computer! Notrepparttar 146982 Amstrad, Apple or Atari; this computer is far more complex, infinitely more powerful. The computer Karbo and others like him refer to is your unconscious computer - your mind!

According to many psychologists and motivational gurus, we use only a tiny proportion of our U/Cs. Programmingrepparttar 146983 U/C to solve your problem is easy, all you have to do is ask. This is what you do:

Writerepparttar 146984 problem down atrepparttar 146985 top of a clean sheet of paper. Sectionrepparttar 146986 remainder ofrepparttar 146987 page into two vertical columns.

Try to solverepparttar 146988 problem yourself. Onrepparttar 146989 left-hand side, write down all possible ways to solve your problem. Include reasons. Onrepparttar 146990 other side, listrepparttar 146991 potential drawbacks of each considered solution.

Ask your U/C to chooserepparttar 146992 best solution from those listed or to come up with another. This might sound silly, but believe me it isn't. Karbo tells readers to think of your U/C as 'another person, an employee or assistant'. We must tell that other person 'I wantrepparttar 146993 answer to this problem by tomorrow morning ... or four o'clock this afternoon'. Then you just forget it, go to sleep or turn to doing something else.

Surely enough, just as that name you've struggled to remember will suddenly come to you long after you've given up trying, your U/C will providerepparttar 146994 answer you need. Try it, it works.
