    When you see little problems do you confront them on the spot or put them off.

    So many people put little problems off and then this in turns surfaces at another time and adding to the last little problem, and building until something small tips the scale and causes a huge unecessary blow up .This could have been avoided at the lowest level by just taking care of it at the first sign of trouble. So many people say oh it's no big deal and they truely contribute to the big explosion.

    That describes me at times - letting the little things build until I explode. I think I do it because, at the time, that little problem really doesn't seem like a big deal and probably isn't. It's forgotten until a bunch of things build up and then each little thing gets blown out of proportion and I make a big deal out of something that isn't.

      Yes and we should promise ourselves to handle each little thing as small as it may seem no big deal just a grain of salt.

    Start solving them asap, & you become a problem solver..A problem solved should never come back, & if it does you've already solved it once so it's not a problem now....By working on the small one's first it gives us great practice at logically solving issues in our life, to then go on & start tackling the medium sized problems....Which as we've now expanded our comfort zone by eliminating all of our small problems/worries, those that we're before seen as medium problems are now seen as small problems. :-)

    For me, I think it depends on the situation. In relationships, or with family, friends, work, etc. I absolutely attempt to tackle the issue immediately because those are the kinds of issues that can build into an explosion with a very unwanted end result. I'd like to avoid that as much as possible.

    However, in other things I can't say I always tackle the issue right away. For example, we're renting. The refridgerator stopping running. Called maintenance and it was replaced - with a used one. This one is not running as well as it should, but I dont want to bother management again, so I deal with no ice or icecream lol I'm sure the day is going to come when it no longer runs at all and that may be a bigger issue then. Maybe I should just call them lol...

    Well, now in hindsight, actually considering the potential consequences has encouraged me to do something. Maybe that's exactly what's missing when people don't immediately tackle an issue: the lack of projection &/or belief that something worse can happen later. This might have just changed the way I see those seemingly small things... Great thought-provoking question!

      Great advice mothersofnations, & i like your name....Anyway I'd like to add that the best thing i started to do, was to use logical thinking like your doing..There is always a "most logical" answer, it's just being aware at the time to use logic.

      DaveAdam, yes, logical thinking, so important. I think sometimes we're so busy we allow things to slip right past us until it becomes an obstacle. And thank you for the compliment on my God-given user name smile  God bless you.
