Got a Problem? No Problem: The Problem is Over

Updated on April 19, 2013

It's questions, questions, questions...

Problem Solving could well be one of the main purposes of our lives...

Ya Gotta Problem?

Welcome to No Problem: The Problem is Over. Now, you've got to make a decision as to whether you'll read this, and making decisions is a problem. But to start:

What would life be like if we had no problems? At first we might think: “Wonderful, don’t even have to go to work today – or any other day for that matter. You see, I have no more financial problems. I can buy what I like when I like; go where I like when I like; do anything when I like where I like.”

Immediately a problem would arise.

Immediately a problem would arise- no more decision making. What can I do with all this freedom? But as we had no problems, this question would not arise. In fact, we would not even be bothered by decision making; everything would just evolve without any effort on our part. It would be like sitting back watching a endless and exciting – no, no excitement. Excitement comes from problems, anticipating outcomes, that sort of thing. Yes, and adventure fits into the same category: no chance of a problem, no adventure.

Ya gotta problem, too?

Even sitting can be a problem.

Hmmm... So we would be sitting there...and... No, in sitting one can eventually become uncomfortable. Any discomfort is a problem. Okay, so we’d be lying down - No, lying down in the same position could result in bedsores and that’s a problem. Maybe we could roll over. But that would involve decision-making and...


Who or what is in control when we've got no problems?

No, it could be an automatic reflex; we let our body roll us over when it gets tired of being in the same position. But then we have a problem: Who or what is in control if we allow our automatic reflexes to run our life?

Ah, we’re floating. We’re weightless. The problem is over. Food is somehow brought to us. It’s always just right, too. Tasty, nourishing, always the best we’ve ever had. But are we to work out which of these foods we like best? And do we have to? Making a decision on that could be a problem and we’ve opted for no problems and to live in a universe where we have none.

Why is decision making necessary? Is this the All Mighty Question?

Problem solving - why, oh, why, do we have to do it?
Problem solving - why, oh, why, do we have to do it?

And we have nothing to do...

We now live in a universe perfect for us. And we have nothing to do. Everything we want is instantly brought to us. But, of course, we want noting, for wanting is a problem.

You know, what dear reader. I’m beginning to realize not only how pointless life would be without problems. It would be boring, too. Isn’t it great that The All Mighty has, in Her wisdom – or is it Him- or It? (Another problem here) decreed that human beings experience problems? But even asking this question is a problem, isn’t it?

I hope you got some sort of message out of Gotta Problem ? No Problem: The Problem is Over.

    One of the most inspirational yet hilarious speeches I ever heard was by Normal Vincent Peale about problems. He mentioned of course, that in New York, New York, there is a place where there are lots of people with no problems: "Woodlawn Cemetary, in the Bronx." His words ring in my ears yet
