Proximity has the power
How many times have you just pushed and pushed and pushed because you had a problem? How often do we just constantly think about our problems rather than just figuring out what wed have control over in that situation?
Often times it's our proximity that has the power. What I mean is, it's rare that we're ever too far from the problem. It's usually that we're so close to the problem and it's all we think about.
We forget that time and space is what allows us to find the solution. It allows you to see the bigger picture. Think about a big painting or a mural on a building. Up close it doesn't look the same as you standing further back. That's because you're able to take it all in. This same principle can be applied to your problem. Taking a step back will allow you to see the bigger picture.
So if you're constantly finding yourself NOT solving the problem or coming back to it, take a step back.
It might be that you're not seeing the entire picture and thus not seeing the opportunity to find the solution.
