We don’t consider problems we face at work as something positive. Things don’t go as they were planned. Standard actions aren’t enough to find a solution and bring back our work to its proper way. Additional effort is required. Thus we consider problems as bad things.
Which is wrong.
A problem is a chance. A chance to learn. A chance to improve things.
When I consider problem I had to face at work after some time I always think how much I could learn from the situation. I don’t think how I sweated blood any more. I rather care what was organized poorly and how it could have been improved. I try to label people “good,” “evil,” “helpful” or counterproductive” so I learn how to deal with them in the future. And whether to deal with them at all. I think which traps I fell into and how to avoid them.
Every problem is a chance either to learn something about you and your surroundings or to improve the way you work. All you need to see it is a bit of time.
