Day 15/30 Challenge.
I enjoy working out puzzles and brain teasers. I like a degree of difficulty that stretches me so that I feel a sense of accomplishment when I’ve solved it. If it is too easy it doesn’t feel like I’ve learned something and accomplished something new.
Sometimes the solution is staring me in the face and yet I can’t see it. So I have to take a breather, put it down or reassemble the letters or blocks in a different way to reveal the answer.
Sometimes I work out the puzzle on my own. Other times I acknowledge that my skills are not enough and I enlist my partner’s skills and experiences, especially if I’m pressed for time.
Sometimes I can get frustrated and I have to manage my emotions to be more creative.
The way that I problem solve at play has relevance for how I problem solve at work.
