Your growth and development depend on your problem-solving skills, which help identify how to create change and improvement. In my book, The Power of Emotion, I focus on how emotional intelligence supports daily problem-solving.
THE POWER OF EMOTION | CHAPTER 11 | OVERVIEW
How Relevant is Problem-Solving to Success in Your Life?
Each day we are constantly problem-solving, so developing this skill is essential; yet many individuals struggle to recognize it or make it a priority.
Consider the numerous small decisions we make that tax our brain while problem-solving. Yes, you may be surprised how many there are! Regardless of the problems we need to repair, we manage best when we have quiet reflection and a more mindful, thoughtful approach.
All decision-making is taxing: it can leave us mentally and emotionally exhausted. Harnessing our emotional intelligence is fundamental to problem-solving. Recognizing, understanding, and managing the emotions surrounding many of our decisions will help us problem-solve more successfully.
Hone This Skill - Create A Daily Plan
When you take the time to create a daily plan to resolve problems, you will not only be more productive; your day will flow much more smoothly than if you problem-solve each situation as it occurs. It may take some time to adjust how you usually manage your work and time, but once you get out of your comfort zone and work through the change, your confidence and efficiency will soar.
In my book, The Power of Emotion, I share some key points to consider when developing your problem-solving routine, such as:
- Viewing problem-solving and the big picture
- Processing your emotions before making decisions
- Setting aside time and book it in your calendar to review problems daily
Problem-solving skills and processes are a critical part of daily life and a vital emotional intelligence skill. Without question, both increase our capacity to develop and improve our skills. In my book, The Power of Emotion, I identify that if we take the appropriate time to plan, review, solve, and reflect before acting.
