Problem Solving –The Einstein Way

Daily Quote and Challenge:

Albert Einstein once said, “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I knew the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”

Through experience and reflection Einstein knew he had to understand an issue deeply before addressing it. In order for his solution to have the most meaningful impact. You need to overcome the core, often hidden problem in your work — not just the visible stumbling block.

Challenge: Over the next 24 hours identify a problem or issue in your life; then use the proven WOOP method to set goals to solve it.  WOOP stands for Wish, Outcome, Obstacle, and Plan. WOOP has been shown to significantly improve effort, homework completion, attendance, and even GPA when the method is done with fidelity.

Good Luck and Enjoy. Coach Mark
