*stress comes from the pressure created by the problem*. This is an effect of the problem or something the problem creates. Some of the

*stress can also comes from pressures in solving the problem*. Most of the time, this is caused when dealing with constraints. Constraints to solving a problem are sometimes the reason why a problem is difficult to solve. It is when we know how to solve a problem but can't use the solutions we want to. We feel pressured to discard the solutions we like. This mental stress can be difficult. It is difficult to discard anything we like. Relieve that pressure by focusing on this:

*. It won't work because of the constraints we are facing. Don't force a square peg down a round hole. Accept the constraints, if it can't be dealt with, and move on.*

**the solution we like would not have solved the problem**Once we have accepted that the solutions we like are not the solutions that work, we can move on to other solutions that may work. This process is critical and is part of Step4, selecting the solution. We will always aim for the best solution we can but given the constraints, we think we are compromising on the solutions.
