004 – Puzzles in Life
I thought I should share this with my friends. The week we look at the puzzles in life. By this I mean the issues and problems of life and tips to stay on top and win all the time and make decisions quickly. Research has shown that successful people make decisions quickly, so we all need this.
D – Define your values
D – Define your problem
P – Preparation
A – Act
T – Transform
D – Define your values: What do you believe in? What’s your ideal type of deal? Are you bothered about how your food, clothes cars are produced? Who’s your unique type of friend, husband or wife? The list goes on. It is necessary that you keep a list of your core values, that way once you spot a person, friend or opportunity you can decide straightaway if it’s for you or not. Please try this, it works always.
D – Define your problem – When faced with a situation: invest time in analyzing it to identify the root cause. Typical example is: you wake up late everyday. Most people will get a better alarm or moan about early starts without considering their bedtime of the previous day.
P – Preparation – Life is serious business! It’s ready for you; to reward your work so preparation is key. Think of what could go wrong and prepare your response. If your religion has instructions around situations in life, study them, do them and be consistent. Don’t wait until things go wrong before you pray better or longer or read the holy books. Don’t sleep-walk your life, live life every minute of everyday with your eyes wide open. Know that there will be challenges (the Bible said so too) but resolve to beat the challenge alive and victorious. Take this seriously, please.
A – Act – Be ready to apply the response you have prepared for the situation, challenge or problem. If you have prepared, you will not look stunned by these as you will be ready! Doing nothing is not an option.
T – Transform – Last but probably the most important of all. Every challenge is a test for the next level. It is your transformation as a result of your challenges that elevates you to the next level. It is the benefit of all challenges and problems. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from these thing, you’ll be a better bigger and successful person!
Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for the amazing responses and encouragement! God bless!!!
