Jill I am.
I do not like green eggs, but I do like ham.
I do like my business, but I do not like problems in my business.
Do you like problems in your business?
If you do not like problems in your business, here’s a quick RAD way to think of your problems. After reading this, like Sam I Am, maybe you will like problems. Maybe even problems in your business.
Think of any question or problem in your business. Then use this RAD formula to solve it.
When I think of any problem in my business, I figured out that it can be solved in one of three ways:
- By Realizing it’s not really a problem
- By Applying knowledge or experience or practice
- By Deciding what the right answer is
There’s no drama here.
You’re always are in control and always know what to do.
Let’s think of problems that might come up in your business and see which solution fits.
Here’s one that I see a lot.
I don’t have any clients. This one was a problem for me too. Until I realized that it wasn’t really a “problem”. It just happened to be true in the moment.
The reason it feels like a problem is that sometimes it feels like it will always be true. It feels like a problem because of what you make it mean about you as an entrepreneur.
What makes this a problem?
What are all the possible ways this “condition” might be relieved?
What are all the possible ways this might not actually be a problem?
If you didn’t need to solve this “problem” what would you currently be doing in your business?
What if you did all these things anyway (without solving this “problem”)? What might happen? Well, it might actually solve the “problem”.
If you have dirt on your hands, is it really a problem? No, you just wash your hands.
If you don’t have clients, is it really a problem? No, it’s not permanent.
You just keep experimenting with the things that people in business do to create clients. Eventually something starts working and the problem is no longer a problem.
What’s another problem?
Here’s another popular one. I don’t know technology. Is it really a problem? No, not really. It’s not permanent.
This “problem” could also fit into the second category.
But before we apply this one, you first have to ask yourself if you want to know technology.
You weren’t born knowing how to walk, but you learned. You weren’t knowing how to drive a vehicle, but you learned, or can learn. You can learn anything you want to learn.
Just apply knowledge, experience and/or practice and you can solve this problem. This is the information age. There is an abundance of information to help you gain the knowledge that you need for nearly anything you want to learn. And a lot of it is free!
Now one thing I will ask you to consider with regard to getting additional knowledge, experience, certifications or practice is whether you actually need this to move forward in your business. I’ve seen people (myself included) fall into the trap of pursuing this additional knowledge, experience, etc. and get distracted from their main purpose in their business. I’ve seen people buffer with these things.
To avoid falling into this trap, ask yourself a few questions:
Is this distracting you from your purpose, your mission or is it leading you toward your purpose and mission?
Is this a way to escape the things you would rather not do in your business or do you need this in order to do other things that serve your mission?
If you didn’t have to do this, what would you be doing instead?
How does the cost (time, money, energy, lost business) of getting the knowledge compare with the cost of paying someone else for their knowledge (outsourcing, delegating, etc.)?
Now if you’re problem doesn’t fit into either of these two categories, it might fit into the last category of problem. There is no right answer.
When there is no “right” answer, this is the best kind of problem, because YOU get to decide.
You have some really great insight and wisdom already within you. And you have a higher brain that has your best interest in mind. When you ask your higher brain a well-designed question, you will get the “right” answer for you.
Your brain does not like unresolved problems. So, give the problem to your brain in the form of an open-ended question and it will work on the problem until it finds the solution. Then trust yourself to solve any problem that comes up.
When you know to solve any problem in your business, you no longer need to get stuck and can always keep moving forward.
If you do happen to get stuck, I recommend that you check out my free video series How to Get Unstuck In Your Business (http://jillwrightcoaching.com/get-unstuck/) and find additional ways to get unstuck.
What problem in your business does not fit into one of these three? What question do you have that isn’t answered by one of these?
