How to Become a Strategic Thinker and Problem Solver

Is it possible for you to be both a strategic thinker and problem solver?

The answer is yes. Read on for highlights.
Remember always: Where there is a will, there is a way. You need to stay with your problems longer. Either learn to cope with them or gradually downsize them.

So how do you think strategically and solve your problem? Think gradually that you far away bigger than your problem and decide that you are not at all intimidated by it. You are ready to handle it and your creative mind will definitely solve it for you.

A good approach would be to define your problem.

The find out its roots and what allowed it to be born. Then start thinking rationally - the different angles you can pursue for a solution to your problem.
Take enough breaths. Exhale in and out several times slowly, taking in a lot of fresh air. Pure oxygen helps your mind and body cells to function well and you will relax. Now think with your creative mind once again.

All solutions to your problem are within you, but not outside.

By thinking creatively, you will probably come up with dozens of solutions which may leave you confused about which one will really work out.
Start noting them down. Work with two or three per day or more depending on your time pressure. Soon you will start getting clues. One clue will lead to another. Link them up to form a chain and the end of the chain holds the thought for solving your problem.

Another way to solve your problem is to think randomly and put them down in notes as separate entities in the form of unmatched jigsaw puzzle pieces. Settle down for an hour or so dwelling on your problem in complete silence. You never know what you will come up with. Then talk to a good close friend or family member about your thoughts on your current problem. Before you know it, you will find the key solution to your problem because all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fit together now all of a sudden.

So whether you like to use the chain of thoughts or, random thoughts in the form of separate jigsaw puzzle pieces, whichever you choose, you will end up unwinding your problem in the form of a prospective solution.
So think of yourself as a strategic thinker and you will end up becoming a problem solver as well because your creative thoughts, as I have shown, will lead you to the answer you are seeking for your puzzling problem.
