Today I wanted to share with you how to be a real problem solver. So I hope you're going to get some value from this. Okay, so problem solver. First of all, why on earth would you like to be a problem solver? Well, if you want to become a true influencer in business, you might want to become a problem solver because actually, that's one of the qualities of influencers. There’s five qualities that influencers have. They’re independent, they are consistent, they create action, they have a big vision, but one of the qualities is actually that they are able to solve problems.
Breaking news, if you're going to be in business, there's going to be a lot of problems, there's going to be a lot of challenges. It's just part of the business. And the bigger the problem you can solve, the bigger the cheque you're going to earn, because if you think of a normal company structure, you come into the company and you have a problem, a normal worker, if they don't know how to solve that problem, they pass it to the supervisor. If the supervisor doesn't know how to solve the problem, they pass it on to manager, if the manager doesn't know to how to solve it, it keeps going up and up and up until it reaches the CEO and the CEO has nobody to pass this problem on, they have to solve it, and that's why CEO usually has the biggest money in the company, because they have to solve all the problems.
So what separates amateurs and real problem solvers, you see, a real problem solver spends about 5% of the time thinking about the problem, and then spends 95% of the time working on a solution. That’s a real problem solver, so they don't just focus, “Oh my God, I got this problem. What can I do? It's game over. It's the end of my life.” No, they see the problem, okay, we have this problem. Okay, what can we do? How can we overcome it? How can we fix it? That's what a real problem solver does, whereas an amateur will try to pass on the problem to somebody else as soon as possible. So they will not try to solve the problem. They will not try to fix anything, they'll just try to pass on the problem to somebody else. So that's the difference between amateurs and real problem solvers because problem solvers go and solve the problem.
So if you want to become a better problem solver, if you want to grow as a better problem solver, I suggest you do four things. So if you get challenged with a problem, if you come across a problem in your business, first thing you should ask yourself is, what could I do? What can I do to solve this problem? What can I do to figure this out? What can I do to reduce the impact of this challenge? What can I do to overcome that challenge? So that's number one.
Number two is what could I learn? So if you get presented with a problem that you're not sure how to solve , what could you learn? Could you go on YouTube and watch a video that will explain how to solve this problem? Could you go on Google and look for an article that would explain to you how to solve the problem? Could you go into your company's website and find the right description, or the right document that will help you to solve this problem? Could you go to the team training area and find the video or the file that answers how to overcome this problem? So that's number two. Number one, what could I do? Number two? What could I learn?
Number three then is who could I ask? So who could you ask to help you to solve this problem? Who could you ask for support? And then number four, super important is don't ask first. Don’t ask first because if every time you get challenged with the problem, every time you come across with a problem, if you straight away ask, then you don't become a problem solver, the person who you’re asking, they will become a problem solver but you won't become a problem solver ever because you never try to solve the problem, you never try to figure it out, you always just asking somebody else, “Hey, what do you do in this case? Hey, what do you say in this case? Hey, what would you do that?”
So one, think about what can I do when you get presented with a problem? Two, what can I learn and only three, who could I ask? So don't be a person who asks first, and that will help you to become a great problem solver and the bigger the problems you'll solve, the more money you can earn. That's the lesson for today.
