Problem Solving 1The approach to problem solving is dependent upon the nature of the problem and those involved.  Problems can be caused by a variety of things – both negative and positive.  For example:

  • But problems do not always result in stress.  Perhaps you have invented problems that may occur or cannot make a decision about something.

The interesting thing is that problems aren’t always negative.  For example, you are invited on a cruise and you feel excited.  The problems here are enjoyable – organising passports, time off work, what clothes to wear.
