6 Steps to Solve Big Problems with Small Solutions

By Jason Abell |   Apr 06, 2016

Today's article is about problem-solving when things appear to be overwhelming.


16 years ago, I had just made a huge move in my mortgage banking practice. My career started 7 years earlier when I was hired as an assistant to 2 high-level sales people who taught me the ropes and helped me get my life off the ground as a contributing person in the workforce. Before long I was on my own slinging loans in the suburbs of Washington DC for a smaller regional bank. I started making some inroads, built some key relationships, and felt that I was ready to join an organization with a nationwide banking presence, so I made the decision to join Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. My first day was Monday, April 3rd, 2000. I walked in the front door smiling from ear to ear. I was excited. I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to get after it at my new company.

In 2013, polar explorers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere became the first people to survive a human powered round-trip journey from the coastline of Antarctica to the South Pole and back— a journey of 1800 miles across one of most inhospitable terrains on Earth. The trip was called the Scott Expedition, named after the leading explorer who died (along with five others) in 1910 attempting the same trek.

A variation of the same question has been in front of me and the other Rewire Specialists lately, both in our workshops and in our OneWire sessions. And when the same question pops up over and over again, we pay attention here at Rewire. So I wanted to take this week’s article to tackle this thing that seems to be on everyone’s mind. Here’s the question:

As I work with people, one recommendation I’ve seen pay dividends regardless of job title is to stay curious. Whether you’re a CEO or janitor, in operations or sales, following this axiom will keep you growing and connecting — both with your work and with the people around you.

Read And Write Your Way To Exceptional Growth 

By Jason Abell |   Nov 11, 2015

Self-improvement has become an incredibly complicated business. Did you know there are over 120,380 books (and counting) on Amazon and hundreds of apps on the iTunes App Store and Google Play? All to help you sell more, lose weight, enjoy better relationships, communicate better, and worry less, among others. This overabundance of options makes it increasingly likely that we will choose “no option at all” and make no progress toward improvement. In fact, due to this overabundance and the often-competing views on this subject, one very common request we get from OneWire clients and workshop attendees is to simplify the improvement process down to its most basic elements.

The human brain desires ease. None of us is exempt from that fact.

What Gets Measured Gets Done

By Jason Abell |   Apr 22, 2015

I had an interesting conversation with a client during a one-on-one session (we’ll name this client Casey for fun, even though that’s not his real name). Casey said something like “Jason, I’ve never really been much of a numbers person. If you had asked me a month ago how much I weighed or what my sales production was last year, I could not tell you as I just hadn’t really kept track of that stuff.”
