Root out the challenges

Priorities – These are your most important goals. You can’t do everything. As the saying goes, when you focus on everything, you focus on nothing.

A different paradigm would be “Hunt for problems.” The biggest best we can find and solve them at the root. 

We benefit from discovering the beliefs that limit us and replacing them with more effective beliefs.

The root of your challenge could be Paradigm if…

Once you get to the root, remember to define the next step!
