When something bothers me, I find that I can usually group it as either something I am not comfortable with or something I don’t have that would make my life more comfortable. Before I determine how to tackle it, I look at the level of influence that the issue has on my life. I have listed some sample questions below to help you think about the influence of an issue on your life.

The aim is to get you to start thinking and pondering and wondering about whatifs and maybes. Also, I use the word Gagil to represent bad or unwanted, and Gaba for good or desired. You can use any language that makes you comfortable, such as Problem or Limitation, or Wish or Progress.
