Looking for Solutions Instead of Problems

Working in a field that is constantly changing can be challenging for a multitude of reasons. Our mindset for approaching the constant barrage of challenges can make a world of difference in both outcome and attitude. In this quick post, I'm going to share my thoughts on approaching problems with a solution-oriented mindset. Let's dive in!

Throughout my career, I've faced my fair share of challenges. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't always succeeded or made the right decisions. With each outcome, positive or negative, I tried to learn and grow in order to improve and not make the same mistakes twice.

I've found that everyone has their own way of dealing with challenges. Some will be focused on finding solutions or workarounds. Others will be keen to poke holes in solutions and continually find the negatives throughout the entire process. Who would you rather work with? It's an easy answer for me.

I'd much rather work with someone who is willing to approach challenges in a pragmatic, solution-oriented manner, which is the same mindset that I try to take on. When the pressure rises and things feel like they're on fire, it's those with a solution-oriented mindset who are able to persevere and help their team get through tough periods.

It's easy to find problems, they're all over. Focus on solutions.
