How To Turn Problems Into Learning Opportunities

Written by Don Adriano

The last thing you want to do is to experience one problem after the next and never really get anything out of it. Some problems might be reoccurring and if you would have learned something from those problems, you might not find yourself repeating the same mistakes. Then there are problems that, on the surface, appear to be new and different problems. But again, if you would have learned some valuable lessons from other problems that you have experienced then those current problems might have never come into play.

So what do you do? Well, you have to be proactive and learn about how you can take those problems and turn them into learning opportunities. How do you do just that? Start by taking a look at the following suggestions.

Write It Out

After you have experienced a problem and there has been a resolution, whether you are happy with the outcome or not, you are going to want to write about it in a journal. This journal is going to be a great way to keep track of everything that you are going through so that you can look back on the issues and determine how you can make sure that you are never going to experience the same issues again.

Write about what happened. How was the situation a true issue for you? What steps did you have to take to resolve the problem and was the resolution a happy one? Write about the order of events that happened before the issue arrived and determine how they might have made an impact. You can then refer back to everything you have written out in order to find patterns in what is happening so you can find a way to make the best changes possible.

As you can see, this might not be something that you will be able to flip around overnight. It is going to take some time, research, and dedication on your part to make sure that you are truly taking the struggles you have been faced with and turn them into learning opportunities.
