Do you have a sounding board?

When you have a problem or idea, do you have someone to bounce the idea off of?

Frequently a problem arises and when you keep it to yourself, it builds up in your own mind to the point where it seems to be MUCH bigger than it really is. By talking it out with someone (especially someone who is not closely related to the issue) one of two things will frequently occur.

1.You will realize the issue isn’t as big as you have built it up to be
2.You will realize there is a solution that might not have been readily apparent without talking it out

The sounding board frequently doesn’t actually give you the answers, they just allow you to verbalize the issues and let you arrive at the answers yourself.

If you don’t have a sounding board, I strongly recommend finding one soon

Have a great day!
