Basic Solutions to Complicated Problems
|When Machines Go Wild!|
But this makes me think about life and success. I had a business mentor that told me that there is absolutely NO problem in life or business that is a result of complicated issues. It may look very complicated. It may seem from the outside and outset that there is no way to fix the problem and that it's to complicated for anyone to solve. However this mentor had spent a career solving problems for his bosses in various departments across several business lines. This advice was the result of his years of turning things around to functioning again. You want to know the solution to ANY problem you have? Well here it is.
ALL problem are a result of the failure of basics. There are foundational, basic, elementary things that must take place for something to work. Now, the elements change based on the topic. There is no one set of elements for every issue. But every issue has a base set of elements. Find the basic elements of your machine and you have all you need. All problems are a result of something wrong in your basics.
For example: The machine above operates on mechanical principles. Levers, Wires, Etc. A handyman knows the basics of electronic wiring and mechanical levers. He will be able to go in and find out what is causing the lever to malfunction or be over sensitive or not respond correctly to release. He will make an adjustment and all will be well.
A cake has basics. You get a box from the store, you put in an egg, water/milk, and maybe some oil. There are instructions on the box. Two cake mixes may use slightly different instructions based on what they already have included in the mix. If you use the elements from one box to make a cake with mix from another brand box... you may, if there is a difference, not get the desired result. Adding an extra egg will not produce the desired result. Adding a whole stick of butter (I've done this!) when it calls for a half stick will NOT produce the desired result!
If you are a chef/baker... and you know all about the WHY behind the ingredients... you know the basics and why they do what they do, you could then break from the instructions on the box and produce a different result than the box intended, but the result you wanted. Why can you break from the instructions? Because you KNOW the basics. You are not just following the basics anymore. Now you are using them according to the knowledge you have developed. That is a whole new level of proficiency.
Marriage, Work, Kids, Church, Businesses... they all have a basic set of principles. What is your core concept? Are you staying true to who you are and what you've been created to do? Are you following the guidelines that have been set before you in and for that situation? Have you taken steps to master the basics to the point that you now know what they do and you are able to mix them in new and exciting ways to produce variations on the result?
If you've mastered the basics of whatever endeavor you have set your mind to, than you are well on your way to creating new and exciting solutions, products, services, ways of doing things... and you can quickly solve any problem because you now know what to look for.
I call you empowered 2 prosper with good success!
