Depending on how you view it, life is but a series of challenges to be overcome... How we approach and deal with these challenges determines the pattern and quality of our lives.
Most of us are pretty adept at handling our challenges – the fact that the human race hasn't petered out is testament to this – and we deal with most of our everyday problems with barely a conscious thought.
However, not all problems are created equal. If you're faced with a particularly challenging one, it makes sense to stop, step back from it, and think very carefully about it. This gives you the time and space to come up with some approaches that you haven't tried before.
