Work to Understand

Jumping to solutions does not work. Faking it until you make it does not make it. Problem solving takes a centered, reasoned, analytical discipline combined with a creative and courageous mind. Put in the work.

It does no good to pretend to understand a problem. Work hard enough to truly understand.

Drain That Problem of Its Power

Powerful problems not only get in the way, they can wrap themselves so tightly around you that you feel both constrained and defined. Not what you want.

And not a certainty. Solve the problem, solve the image issue.

Centered problem solvers do not allow problems to define them. Staying detached, staying focused, working to solve those pesky problems.

A problem has no power to define you once it's solved.

You know what to do.
