Finding a solution to a problem begins when you take the decision to do something about it. You don’t actually have to act, to make a start.

Deciding to do something doesn’t mean you have to know how you’ll go about it. Take one thing at a time:

  • Decide what the problem is
  • Accept that something needs to be done about it
  • Decide to do something about it.

Once you’ve got to this stage, do nothing. You’ve decided that you will act but you don’t yet know how you’ll act. That’s fine and a good place to start. Get used to the idea that you will do something to fix the difficulty, and start to imaging how it’ll be when the problem has gone.

In due course your course of action will start to reveal itself.

Or not. If it doesn’t, you’ll be no worse off than you were before you started.
