List of problems found
Last week I invited you to go find problems at work (not make problems, just find them).
Let’s take this up a notch and exercise your creative thinking at work.
Make a list of 30 things that bothers you at work. Anything from finding a
good parking spot to getting a working pen when you need it, to being inspired
during a long and monotonous meeting. Ask your colleagues for their problems.
Now look at your long list and think: what simple tweaks in your daily
routine or small changes in work setting that will result in being closer to
solving this mini problem?
Remember what Muhammad Ali said, “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that
wear you down. It’s the pebble in your shows”.
Celebrate your small win.
Rinse and repeat.
