Not all projects are problems, but all problems are projects. The trouble with problems is they look like projects, and then sit there on your list thumbing their noses at you while you can’t figure out why they aren’t getting done. The fact is, you’ll do just about anything to avoid doing them or thinking about them. Because you’re stuck. There is something preventing you from moving forward.
At some point you realize that there is a problem with the project. And you have to take a closer look at exactly where you are hung up and why. It may take some brainstorming to come up with alternate creative solutions to get around the problem.
- Identify the sticking point
