I have a problem.

I'm having a problem. I've never encountered a problem of any kind before, so when this happened, I googled "Problem Solving Worksheet" to find a good way to solve it.

(Worksheet taken from ADHD News.)


Problem Solving Worksheet



What is the problem?
The Hawaiian words "ALOHA" and "MAHALO" almost make a palindrome together, but not quite.

What may have caused the problem?
Beholders.

List 3 possible solutions.
1. Commit to eating only egg whites and raw bran for the next ten years.
2. Snuggle with an adorable red panda.
3. Redefine every word in every language in the world, especially "ALOHA" and "PALINDROME."

What are the positive outcomes of option 1?
Save on food bills. May become dizzy enough that I start spelling "MAHALO" as "MAHOLA."

What are the negative outcomes of option 1?
Would not in any way address the problem. Also, would be bland. And I might get some serious malnutrition from lack of vegetables.

How do you feel about this option now?
Nervous, nauseated.

What are the positive outcomes of option 2?
Adorable! Red! Panda!

What are the negative outcomes of option 2?
Technically not actually a panda.
Also has nothing to do with Hawaiian language.
I think I could get scratched.

How do you feel about this option now?
Delighted, wistful.

What are the positive outcomes of option 3?
Would look impressive on a resume. Lewis Carroll would approve.

What are the negative outcomes of option 3?
Would take a very long time and infuriate anybody who liked the previous meanings of words.

How do you feel about this option now?
Betrayed, bedraggled, betrothed. Wait, scratch that last one.

What is your solution?
I don't know. Maybe grab another worksheet and start over.

IF YOU HAVEN'T FOUND A SOLUTION, THEN GRAB ANOTHER WORKSHEET AND START OVER.

I think I may need to grab another worksheet and start over. Please help.
