First of all, you need to formulate the task correctly that you set for yourself. The next step is to find contradictions in this task. It is the elimination of contradictions that makes a powerful solution.
For example, you want to learn how to earn more. However, you do not want to work longer. There is a contradiction. A powerful solution will be if you manage to eliminate this contradiction and increase earning without increasing the time for work.

Well done, Oleks!

First of all, you need to formulate the task correctly that you set for yourself correctly [Learn about adverb placement: https://www.grammar.com/2-where-do-adverbs-go/]. The next step is to find contradictions in this the task. It is the elimination of contradictions that makes (‘Create’ is a better choice here because make has a more practical sense in the field of chemistry.) a powerful solution.

For example, you want to learn how to earn more, however, you do not want to work longer (hours, or ‘work harder’, ‘work more’). There is a contradiction here. A powerful solution will be if for you to manage to eliminate this contradiction and increase your earnings without increasing the time you put in for work.

Hi Oleks,

That's a fantastic example you have given. Recently, I have reading some articles about how to earn passive income. It seems that, with careful planning, it is perfectly possible.

As you have pointed out, task/goal setting requires time, research and an analytical approach. (Unlike my way of doing it which involves me waking up one morning and saying something like "I want to be fitter and stronger", then forgetting about the goal the following week haha)

Again, Aliakbar and Faye have both done a great job of evaluating your English.

I just noticed that you pronounced the word "work" a bit strangely. Listen to me saying it a few times.

Hi Ed! Thank you for your comment and audio! I am interested in this topic about passive income too, and I hope that someday it will work out.
