I find that the easiest part of a problem is testing to see if it’s a real problem.
The hard part comes in knowing what to do about it.
But I know two truths about problem solving:
- It doesn’t help to pretend that there is no problem.
- Or to confuse discussion for decision.
If you don’t want to solve a problem, don’t bring it up or bring it up endlessly.
If you do, it will take action. And it will take support for action.
That’s where the real work is found: in building something up.
The demolition is fun. We all love sledgehammers. It only takes a few of us and we can bring the house down.
Today, I prefer the ruler and the pencil, smartphone and Facebook, or power drills and screws. Use these tools to build something.
