Is it chronic?
Because it might mean that this is something you have to live with.
To be clear though, most things, you don’t have to live with.
You don’t have to live with your dead-end job for the rest of your life even though it can feel that way.
Are you stuck?
Because it might mean you have to build a better system.
Human beings have this unique ability to jump in and out of system thinking to better understand the problem as a whole. We can ask questions like What’s it for? and Why?
Is this a cycle of infinity?
Problems will always exist. Because once you solve one, two more pop up in its place.
Better questions lead to better explanations, not the elimination of problems forever.
Are you focused on the wrong thing?
You might not be asking the right questions.
You might have to dive deeper than a simple Google search.
