Up To You

It's easy to blame someone else for your problems but that doesn't fix them.

That's up to you.

The Trouble With Walking Away

Walking away from an unsolved problem is a fairly certain way of guaranteeing you'll see that problem again.

Problems Connecting People

Do you ever think about how problems can bring people together.

We would not choose the problem, and in many cases would not even choose to interact with the people involved, yet when we remained focused on understanding and collaboration, the problem can bring people together in ways otherwise unavailable.

We can grow individually as we work collaboratively.

Think of problems as a way of connecting people who would otherwise disconnect.

It will help you to solve the problem, and in the process, you'll meet some rather neat people.

Change the Mix

Problems surround us; solutions elude us: change the mix.
