“Self-evaluation directs us to prepare our next performance from the past and today’s experiences.” Auliq Ice

A good way to trigger creative solutions to your problems is to apply the “theory of constraints.” This theory says that, in every process or series of activities, there is a limiting factor. There are constraints or bottlenecks that determine the speed at which you get from where you are to where you want to go. The very act of identifying the critical constraints in your environment often triggers ideas and insights that help you to alleviate them.

For example, let us say that your goal is to double your income over the next three to five years. You begin identifying the constraints on achieving this goal by asking, “Why isn’t my income twice as high already?”

Be honest. Ask yourself the brutal questions: Why aren’t you already earning twice as much as you are earning today? What is holding you back? Of all the things that are holding you back, what is the major limiting factor that will determine how fast you achieve your goal?
