Top 5 Tips: Top 5 Ways to Unstuck a Very Stuck Problem


Sometimes we might become very stuck. What we are facing can be a very difficult problem or situation. Here are my top 5 ways to unstuck a really stuck situation.

1. Lighten Your Burden: Who says that problems must be solved. Tell yourself that some problems are not solvable or some problems are better left them unsolved.

2. Stop Doing whatever You are Doing. If it is useful, it is already useful. Continuing useless methods just add more frustration. Then you are further stuck.

3. Tell Someone about Your Problem. When you describe your problem to someone else, you are organizing your thoughts. This helps.

4. Play. Treat this as a game. If you win, you win. If you lose, you just lose a game. This can “light” up your mind!

5. Seek Advises. Not just one advise, seek at least several. Don't just believe in them. Get some new insights from others' solutions. Then work out your own.
