If you follow this guide carefully, the things you might see as difficulties now become enjoyable challenges. Seven steps to dealing with problems:

  1. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PROBLEM?
    Make sure you know what it is!
     
  2. WHAT END RESULT DO YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE?
    Decide on what “success” means to you.
     
  3. COLLECT INFORMATION
    What are the facts? Who / What can help? (Teachers, books, time, etc.)
    What are your priorities?
     
  4. DECIDE WHAT HAS TO BE DONE
    How will you achieve your aim?
     
  5. PLAN AHEAD
    When? How? Why?
     
  6. ACT
    Carry out your plan.
     
  7. REVIEW
    Have you achieved what you set out to do? (Yes or No)
    Were you unsuccessful? (Go back to Number 1…)
    Did you fall short in any way? (Go back to Number 2…)
    Have you learned anything? (If not, why not…?) 

    What should you do next…?
