What are your steps on problem solving?

Question by houck2004: What are your steps on problem solving?

Read this: “There are many approaches to problem solving, depending on the nature of the problem and the people involved in the problem. The more traditional, rational approach is typically used and involves, eg, clarifying description of the problem, analyzing causes, identifying alternatives, assessing each alternative, choosing one, implementing it, and evaluating whether the problem was solved or not.

Another, more state-of-the-art approach is appreciative inquiry. That approach asserts that “problems” are often the result of our own perspectives on a phenomena, eg, if we look at it as a “problem,” then it will become one and we’ll probably get very stuck on the “problem.” Appreciative inquiry includes identification of our best times about the situation in the past, wishing and thinking about what worked best then, visioning what we want in the future, and building from our strengths to work toward our vision.”

What method do you use solve problems? Do you think in terms of Problem Solving? Do you think that the appreciative inquiry would help in your legal and personal life? What other approaches would you suggest?

If I can’t change the facts, I don’t worry about them. If I can, then I make a plan and carry it out a soon as possible, I don’t worry about it after the plan is in place. Makes my life less stressful.
