Recognizing there is a problem

In Step 1 of the Unscribbling process we “Become Aware.” By that I mean that we admit that there is a problem that we should be solving, we find what we want, and we dig deeper to discover our true desires. Once that is discovered, true problem solving can begin.

But before we can start to solve any problem we must first become aware. I like to share quotes in the book from minds smarter than mine to reinforce the point I am making. I saw this clip and was blown away by it. Put aside any political affiliations you have and watch this powerful demonstration of the thought that we must first become aware.

Beginning scene of the new HBO series The Newsroom explaining why America’s Not the Greatest Country Any Longer… But It Can Be.

As he says towards the end:

“First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one.”


So here is a question for you: What problem in your life exists that you are ignoring that you should become aware of?

Takeaway: The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one.

P.S. Totally looks like a great show! I may have to unscribble the fact that I don’t have HBO and really want to watch this. 😉

Unscribbling – Problem solving ANY problem (or desire)…

Learn how to solve any problem in your life and fulfill all of your desires!
(For real!)

In life, you can either become a victim of your circumstances or you can empower yourself. You can settle for where you are at in life, or you can learn how to get past road blocks and make your life all that you desire it to be.

We are all capabale of solving our problems and creating the life we desire. Unfortunately, these are skills that are rarely taught in schools, or in the home. You may be taught how to solve “A” particular problem, but you probably have not been taught how to solve ANY problem that comes your way. The techniques in this book can be applied to any problem – big or small.

This book will help give you steps to solve your problems by helping you to…
– find your true desires (which are behind problems)
– explore ways to fulfill your desires
– show you how to create an actionable plan to fulfilling your desires.
– And then we’ll explore what might be holding you back

We’ll explore key problem seeking & solving strategies that can be applied to any problem (from dating to business issues). The strategies will help you to “unscribble” and develop what I would call “a problem solving consciousness.” With a problem solving consciousness, we are able to thoroughly immerse ourselves in the present moment, enjoy the flow of life, and find a peace of mind that comes with the confidence of a peaceful mind. It helps you to “Enjoy the Fish!” (That phrase will make sense after you read the last part.)
