“Fall in love with the problem, not the solution.”
—Kaaren Hanson, VP of Design /Innovations/ Intuit
Through the course of our lives, we have all developed strategies for success which we apply to the daily challenges we face in our professional and personal worlds.
As long as these default solutions work reasonably well, we rarely seek alternative solutions that may actually work far better.
When we embrace, and even fall in love with, the problems we face, we generate a higher ability for innovation and creativity, discovering possible solutions that were previously unrecognized.
How might falling in love with your problems help you release some of the “sacred cow solutions” you have used over the years? What new and potentially more successful solutions would be possible?
