“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”Albert Einstein
Isn’t it interesting how easy it is to come up with ideas and solutions for other people’s problems, but when it comes to our own problems we can’t figure out what to do?
We are too close to the situation(s) to see clearly enough to be objective.
We get so wrapped up in the stress and the emotions of what’s going on, or focus is so narrow we don’t have a clue about what’s actually going on.
Take a step back. Look at the bigger picture.
It’s impossible to see your own face unless you have something that reflects it—like a mirror or photo.
Separate yourself from the equation.
If your friend was going through X, what would you recommend them to do?
If a complete stranger on the internet was dealing with Y problem, what answers would you suggest?
