What’s The Real Problem? (0:23)
A client recently asked, with frustration, “What am I doing wrong? What’s the problem?”
— The problem is not that you’re doing something wrong; the problem is that you keep choosing the same old road, again and again, expecting it to take you to the fast lane.
— The problem is not that you don’t put in the effort; the problem is that the effort you’re putting in is not going where it’s needed most.
— The problem is not that you don’t know how; the problem is that you resist doing the necessary homework or deep research, to figure out how.
— The problem is not that you don’t have the connections; the problem is that you don’t use the connections you do have—to lead you to the connections you want.
— The problem is not that your timing is off; the problem is that you allow impatience to dictate your agenda.
— The problem is not that “there just isn’t enough time in the day,” the problem is that you allow petty distractions (like Facebook, email, and news) to steal your focus and rob you of your precious “creative” time.
The problem is not that you don’t know what the problem is; the problem is that you really do know what the problem is and you resist doing anything about it.

1.) Notice the things you are doing that successfully produce the results you want. 2.) Apply this approach to the other goals you want to accomplish. 3.) Be grateful and repeat.

Michael, of course we'll have to exclude your email from the list of distractions you mentioned in your article.

Great and true. It is also a different ballgame when you are financing your creations as they come to life..and also realizing that a poor product is not worthy. Today, however, IS a creative day :-) :-) Yippee...! Have a great day Michael Rachel

The problem is realizing the problem. I made a list of things to do on Monday past, I looked at it today, Sunday and now I'm playing cram catchup without daily progress this past week.

The problem in finding one's place in time and space.

The problem for me is NOT that after 25 years of pursuing my musical dreams, I am more frustrated and impatient than ever, the problem is, am I willing to modify or revise my goals so I can continue making a living in this industry.

I have one key player who time and time again sabotages the whole creative process. I have known it for a long time but Iíve resisted firing him. The problem isnít HIM itís ME!
