JIM ROHN’S FORMULA FOR PROBLEM SOLVING

He said to solve any problem you must ask yourself three questions:

1. What could I do?

2. What could I read?

3. Who could I ask?

EXPLANATION FOR NO.1:

We ask this first because most of the time we already know what we need to do to improve our results. You don’t need more information or outside help, you just need to act.

EXPLANATION FOR NO.2:

If you don’t know what you must do, then you need to study.

Most of the time you’ll easily find the answers you’re looking for with a simple search on Google or YouTube. 

But this process has the potential to be more valuable than that. You may discover that you’re actually asking the wrong question. For example a lot of people ask me “What do I need to eat to lose fat?”. If they researched this website for 5 minutes before asking that question they would realize it’s the wrong question to ask because the calories and macros are what actually matter. You learn the basic terms that will allow you to understand the answer you get when you do ask for help. People ask me “Why am I no longer losing fat?”. I ask them back “How many calories are you eating and how are your macros set up?”. They say “Uhmm, what are calories and macros?” You see, if people don’t research in advance they may not even be able to understand the answer they get back.

EXPLANATION FOR NO.3:

Finally, if you did all you can to find the answers you’re looking for but you’re still stuck then you earn to right to ask for help.

When you ask someone for help, it means it’s a big problem. 

If you go to an influential fitness person and you explain that you searched their website, you read the articles, you read the books, you watched the videos, you tried everything but you’re still stuck then they will be more than happy to help you out. In fact they may give you 10-15 minutes of their time because they will know that you will actually value their response. Not only that, but you will be asking the right questions. YOU instantly stand out from the other commenters.
