“The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective – people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.” – Deepak Chopra
Not many of us become overly excited when we are confronted with a problem. Most of us do not wake up in the morning hoping that we will have problems during the day. But if you want to succeed in life and business you will have to become a problem- solver.
It is the problem-solvers that are the ones that survive and thrive. The more problems you solve the greater your value becomes to your organization and your customers. The greater your value, the greater your rewards.
But the highest recognition and rewards go to, not only those who solve problems, but those who have the foresight and ability to prevent potential problems.
When you go about your work today, think about potential problems that may arise and solve them before they occur. Your value to the organization will increase as you are recognized as not only a problem-solver, but someone who prevents problems. As your value increases, so will your rewards.
