Sales Tip: Look at problems in a new way

July 11, 2018
Make problem solving easier by treating it like a puzzle.

Mac Tools dealer David Prime Jr. of Albany, New York, finds that treating day-to-day problems as puzzles makes them easier to resolve. It's all about the having the right view point, and how you look at it, he says.

"Somebody once told me that problems are just puzzles," Prime says. "So as soon as you get the 'problem' word out of your [mind] and think of it as a puzzle, life gets a lot easier."

Treating problems as puzzles puts each one into perspective and can make them seem less daunting and therefore easier to resolve. It can be surprising what a difference this tactic can make.

"If you focus on it being a problem, problems come with negative thoughts," Prime concludes. Keeping it positive can make a world of difference.
