Be a problem solver, not a problem starter


Life is full of problems and challenges. Luckily, as we have investigated, most problems that occur at school are little or small problems that can be easily solved. People who solve problems are called problem solvers. Problem solvers look to see how they can make the world better for others. Problem starters make bad things even worse.

Good problem solvers are creative thinkers. They listen to their coach and refuse to quit. When problem solvers work with others, they use the “Yes, and …”  strategy to build on other people’s ideas. Below are some videos about some incredible problem solvers. We will begin with the legend of a tiny, but mighty problem solver: the hummingbird.
