Before I had ever heard about the solution-focused approach I have on several occasions in my life, I guess intuitively, acted and thought in a very solution-focused way. One of these occasions which I remember ironically took place in the beginning of the 1980s around the time the approach was developed.
Many solution-focused colleagues have told me they too have acted and thought solution-focused before they heard about the approach. I am curious about your experiences.
My question is: Do you remember you have acted or thought in a very specific solution-focused way too before your ever heard about the approach? If so, what principle or technique did you think of or apply?
