March 29 – Are you inspiring new problems? Are you hesitant to take something you are doing to the next level because you don’t know what challenges you may face? Do you have an idea that excites you, yet you anticipate it will open up opposition, resistance or unknown obstacles? Are you comfortable with the way things are going right now, and don’t really want to rock the boat with a new challenge?
One of the greatest side effects of trying something new or different than what has been done before are the problems that arise to challenge your perseverance, tenacity and ability to think beyond where you had been thinking before. Never let fear keep you stagnant. Allow curiosity to prevail with each problem that arises.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to the excitement that new problems can bring. When you create new problems, you are creating opportunities. With anything that has never been tried, never been done, or never been realized, problems are exactly what are needed to challenge your assumptions, uncover the best solution or discover a brilliant alternative. Take a moment to imagine what problems could be created by what you are seeking to accomplish. Allow your curiosity to then anticipate potential options and ways of approaching or mitigating. Consider also the reality that there will likely be problems you could not anticipate. Then instead of allowing the unknown to limit you, allow it to ignite your curiosity to see what happens. Curiosity is your friend. Fear is your foe.
