Problemology: Problem Solving Models


I recieved an question from one of our classmates today as follows:

You have suggested two different approaches to solve difficult problem in the WABC Roundtable meetings:

1) 忘記 - 憂慮 - 欠缺 - 挫折 - 忽略 - 危險
2) 症狀 - 理想 - 差異 - 機制 - 解決 - 起因

Do you have any suggestion on how to relate the 2 approaches into an inter-related model for solving problem. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Here is my answer and I like to share with you all:

These 2 models are choices for you to choose to solve your problems.

They might not have any relationship. But the more choices one has, the higher the possibility of getting his/her problems solved. One can't solve his/her problems because one might not have enough choicea or have only one single choice but it doesn't works.

In my recent free course, the Life Strategist Program, I presented 50 problem solving strategies. The one message I want to share is: We can have a lots of choices!

BTW, the first model can be easily used in personal problems while the 2nd one can be used in both personal and business situations with ease.
