Who hasn’t had a problem they’ve struggled to solve? We struggle, and the world struggles. On one hand, it’s not surprising: virtually every problem in life is in some way unclear. When we try to solve an unclear problem, we usually end up trying to solve a problem different from the one we’re intending to solve. And we don’t know it. The problem we intended to solve, of course, continues. But we let it happen – often. And we can do better.
