Problem or Inconvenience?

I found this gem of a problem-solver in an old issue of Reader's Digest. I mean, how many times have we all gone through moments of insecurity and felt like we had the worst luck in the whole wide world?

"Problem or Inconvenience?"
For me this phrase was a mind-eye opener. I was like, I just actually, froze to the place when I read the words!
How many times have I myself confused a simple inconvenience for a problem?
I liked it soooo much that its got a prominent place in my 'problem-solver sheet.'

i have definte different idea for problem or inconvience.
i till now took prob as a prob and inconvience as inconvience.
it is a nice though to ponder on though

I think you may want to add a twitter icon to your site. I just bookmarked the article, however I had to complete it by hand. Simply my $.02 :)
