Obstacles Come In Two Forms: Internal And External

The single most important factor in dealing with obstacles is to identify them accurately - neither understating nor overstating their importance or the degree of difficulty in solving them.

It is worth noting that every time I have worked with a client able to correctly and realistically identify their obstacles, overcoming those obstacles becomes much more realistic. This is equally true for both external obstacles and internal obstacles.

Nevertheless, correct recognition and assessment makes it possible to create sound approaches to dealing with them. Taking action will mitigate their negative impact. The alternative is wringing your hands.
