|Often you can only choose to address one or two at any time!|
This wasn't always the case, for most of my career I've self-styled myself to be a 'problem-solver,' now as I've grown and developed in both my career and personal life I've come to learn that the problem solver is only as effective as their ability to identify the problems. Solutions are actually often relatively simple and straightforward, asking difficult questions and posing abstract problem scenarios can be extremely challenging and creative. A truly great problem solver cannot be effective if they don't have the proper perspective required to identify the truly significant problems and challenges they are currently or soon will facing. Some of the worst teams I have been involved in have all suffered as a result of poor problem identification and prioritization. In this way it is surprising to me that there are so few articles written on the subject of problem identification and athletics. I know I've been frustrated with coaches in the past who've not seemed to be able to grasp a problem I've tried to present to them. Of course the other hand is that I've often brought up concerns that bothered me personally but that were not relevant.
