Problems Vs Solutions
How many times have you been stopped in your tracks by a problem? You look at the problem from all sides until you think you know that problem, but it still blocks your path. For centuries people have told us that a problem cannot exist without its solution existing at the same time, but the key is looking beyond the problem so that you can see the solution. When your focus is preventing you from seeing anything but the problem, meditations which relax your mind and guide you to finding solutions change from being a luxury to being a necessity.

Supported by a robust sales force and tight cost controls, Pharm Ltd. experienced sustained double-digit growth over a number of years, only to find that their supply chain struggled to keep pace.
