Problem-solving problems


Problem-solving is fun. Like puzzles, it is a matter of time and effort before we crack most of them. We may have to acquire new skills or ask the right questions of the right people, but most issues we will face have a solution.

The problem with problem-solving is that it may lead us to reduce the world to a series of obstacles we must overcome. There is much more to it: harmony, balance and long-term visions are only as real even if often precarious and scarce.

It is worth paying attention to them as well.
