ALREADY IN MOST EFFECTIVE NEW STRATEGIES
Although there are many brilliant, complex strategies out there to solve problems and make things work, most of them contain the "basic unit", the basic tactic, of "doing the opposite."
If you kept that idea "top of the mind", by repeating it to yourself for 30 days and then also tickling it in your calendar to remind you every 7 days, you would net a huge dividend for your life and for your happiness.
OH, SO SIMPLE!
The principle is simple: If what you're doing isn't working to get the desired result, try the opposite of it. This is a core strategy suggested under Eliminating Suffering And Struggle.
The tactic is so simple that it can be embarrassing to propose it, like one is calling the other person an idiot or suggesting an idiotic strategy. But, though it is simple, it is quite brilliant. And you will be quite brilliant if you adopt the strategy.
If you are saying something to yourself and feeling bad, simply say the opposite.
If you are doing something that is harmful to you, simply decide what the opposite is and work out a way to do that. If you are acting like a child or a victim, simply try the opposite - changing your posture, your voice tone, and what you say.

Feeling Good Vs. Feeling Bad
WILL YOU ADOPT THIS STRATEGY?
Of course, it makes no sense to continue an old strategy and expect a different result. That is the definition of insanity.
This is one of the most sane practices to adopt. It will have you living based on "what works" in life, rather than habit or continuing what doesn't work. I recommend that you try it (in your mind first, and if it makes sense, do what you come up with!).
In fact, you could forget about studying alot to overcome problems if you simply carried this one rule, principle, tactic around with you and used it regularly.
