How to improve your problem-solving skills?
Some handy tips to help you improve your problem-solving skills.
Focus on the solution and not the problem
- When encountering complex problems, change your mindset so that you are working towards a solution. Don’t dwell on the problem but instead, focus on the different solutions that can solve the problem.
Simplify the problem
- Reading through problems, it’s best to simplify it. Break down the problem into much smaller steps and then take on each step one at a time. This allows you to clearly see what the question is about and how the problem can be solved.
Think outside the box
- Sometimes the answers are never directly in front of you. When dealing with complex challenging problems, take a step back to analyse what the question is really asking. From there, think of solutions that are not conventional and expand your thoughts.
