THE GRATITUDE JOURNAL: A LINE-A-DAY 5 YEAR JOURNAL is a place to record daily feelings of gratitude to God for his goodness and mercy, or feelings of gratitude to another human being, and so on. Inside this Line-A-Day 5 Year Journal there is one page for each day of the year. There are five entries for each date. To add an entry, go to the current date, find the first available entry space, mark down the year, and jot down a sentence or two. It's just that easy. Gratitude is a key ingredient to cultivating and drawing to you those things you want most in your life. This journal supports you in this effort.
WHY DOES IT FEEL like we're busy solving symptoms rather than underlying problems? When did strategy and implementation get divorced? Why are action plans so often devoid of strategy? Why are there so many solutions that miss the mark? Are we stupid? No. The problem isn't that people are stupid. The problem is that few people use the tools that support effective and efficient problem solving. Most folks do not even know that problem solving tools exist and that these tools are necessary and conducive to coherent thinking and cogent problem solving.
PROBLEM SOLVING PAPER is one of these problem solving tools; it is based on one of humanity's most ancient and most successful problem solving paradigms. For the last 3,000 to 4,000 years, physicians have solved medical problems using this diagnostic method: identify the disease, determine the source of the disease, identify the cure, and, finally, prescribe a treatment plan. Translating it into a modern context, the Productive Luddite's version of the paradigm reads like this: identify the problem (not a symptom of the problem), identify the root cause of the problem, identify a strategy/solution to fix the problem, and, finally, lay out an action plan to implement the solution. The Productive Luddite calls this updated problem solving paradigm Problem Solving Paper.
THE NAME PRETTY MUCH sums up what this ancient problem solving technology is for. But, what kind of problems can it be used to solve? It can be used on big problems or small problems. It can be used to solve important problems, urgent problems, complicated problems, or trivial problems. It can be used to solve personal problems, business problems, scientific problems, or metaphysical problems. The problem solving paradigm you find in this notebook can be used to solve any kind of problem under the sun. Whatever pressing problem or burning issue is vexing you, if you want to get from problem to problem solved . . . Problem Solving Paper can help.
