what is your problems----A problem is yours when you are the person whose needs and desires are not being met
define your problems in terms of needs, not solutions
solutions---i want to get away from the newspaper
needs---i need a job doing work i consider meaningful
what do i want from a vacation?
is the energy involved in solving the problem worth the effort?
pros and cons
what makes the most sense in the long run?
making a decision, right or wrong, is preferable to being passive and letting life happen to you
making no decision is a decision---it is a decision to give up charge of your life
others only have the power that you give them
