You can solve many problems and get what you want by simply asking the right questions. 

How do you solve problems in your life? As you think of various techniques, you might be forgetting something obvious: taking a moment to think things through and asking yourself what the solution might be. It’s a deceptively simple approach that delivers incredible results. 

Take it from the author, who spends his winters in Boston, Massachusetts. It’s a cold, grey, and dreary place and, like lots of Bostonians, he suffers from a mild form of winter depression. For a long time, he dreaded the arrival of November. 

There was one highlight, however – Thanksgiving. That got the author thinking. What, he asked himself, was it that made the annual holiday so enjoyable? More to the point, what could he do to make the rest of November as enjoyable as Thanksgiving? 

The answer? Getting together with friends and family. And that was the solution to the author’s winter blues. Today, he plans parties, excursions, meetups, and game-evenings with the folks he loves. It’s had a miraculous effect. Rather than despairing about the coming winter, he actually looks forward to it! 

Here’s another easy way to tackle problems: don’t just ask yourself what you want, but how you’re going to get it. Think back to when you were a kid and how much you wanted sweets or that new toy your parents refused to buy you. Children typically react to these frustrations by whining or even crying. This is a self-pity trap that you need to learn to avoid. 

The trick is to ask the right question: What do I need to do in order to get what I want? The author taught his son, Matt, to take this approach, and it’s worked wonders. When Matt wants something – a video game, say – he realizes that he has to do something to earn it, like cleaning the dishes after dinner or completing other household chores. 

As you can imagine, that’s a great attitude to take to life’s many challenges and frustrations. Rather than passively grumbling about your lot, it encourages you to put yourself in the driving seat and proactively solve problems for yourself.
