163- The Right Problems

One thing we can never escape from is problems.

It doesn’t matter how rich we become, how spiritual we are, how much knowledge we acquire, how many friends we make, or how loving our relationships are; problems and struggles will inevitably follow.

We can do two things to help make those #problems more bearable.

The first is to ensure that the problems we surround ourselves with are worthy of our attention and energy. This means working on problems that are in service of ourselves, others, or the world around us.

The second is to ensure that we find ourselves solving different problems every day. If we find ourselves solving the same problem under different circumstances, it’s usually a warning for us to start switching things up. Finding the right problems, is the key to a good life.

Ben….agree with the points you have made. I have already framed issues as challenges rather than problems…rocks in the road that need to be crushed into gravel. If I am not experiencing challenges, I know I am not pushing boundaries where true discovery is made.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
