Words Matter Thursdays
Do you have a problem or do you have a challenge?
A problem = doubt, uncertainty, or difficulty
A challenge = a call to battle, a contest, special effort
Our perspective changes based on the words we choose.
When I say/hear problem, I feel there is something that I can solve, but it is going to be difficult.
When I say challenge, I am curious, I want to find a solution, I am more active. I know it might be difficult, but I can do it!
